Mitzvah #252 - The fake prophet

It is forbidden to prophecise falsely as a representative of Gcd.

One who claims - falsely - that Hashem spoke to him, and then informs us of Hashem's message, deserves to be put to death by Beth Din by strangulation.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.

Verse: "The prophet who purposely speaks in My Name things that I did not tell him to say..." Devarim (18: 20)
