But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in My Name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. Deuteronomy, Chapter 18, verse 20.
This passage reminds us to be cautious about the religious advice we listen to. There are many different people out there who say that they know God’s Will for us, but these people tell us totally opposite things. Obviously, everyone who says that they know God’s Will for us; can’t ALL be right. This dilemma confused me for years. I started reading the Bible in 1980, to find out for myself what God’s Will was. That way, I could trust the instincts that God gave me as I read the Bible. This is much better than listening to other people’s opinions in order to figure out who is right and who is wrong.
Because this is an example of how I’ve applied this Bible passage to my life, it doesn't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.
