Is God speaking in this passage? Is this His command? (Dt. 13:7-11)
If your brother, your father’s child or your mother’s child, your son or daughter, your beloved spouse, or your intimate friend entices you secretly, saying, “Come, let us serve other gods,” whom you and your ancestors have not known,
any of the gods of the surrounding peoples, near to you or far away, from one end of the earth to the other:
do not yield or listen to any such person; show no pity or compassion and do not shield such a one,
but kill that person. Your hand shall be the first raised to put such a one to death; the hand of all the people shall follow.
You shall stone that person to death, for seeking to lead you astray from the LORD, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
Yes or no?
