If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a sign or wonder, and if the sign or wonder spoken of takes place, and the prophet says, “Let us follow other gods” (gods you have not known) “and let us worship them,” you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. Deuteronomy 13:1-3

There is one truth that must stand above all—there are no other gods. God takes this seriously in Deuteronomy 13 – so must we. In this instance if a prophet (pastor) can do powerful stuff, which really impresses all of us, but calls for you to worship other gods—don’t listen to him. It is good for us to remember that 1) God will speak more strongly later in this chapter and 2) Martin Luther said that what ever you place your trust in is your god. I think I am doing good with this, but let’s examine the thought further this week.
