Mitzvah #41- Do not prophesies in the name of idols

One may not utter prophecies in the name of idols, even if the intent is to have people follow correct Halacha.

A transgressor gets killed by strangulation.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Pasuk: "and the name of other gods do not mention" (Shmot 23:13)
