As followers of God, we are under constant attack from the enemy as he attempts to deceive us and draw us away from our devotion to God. He will never be content with our faithfulness to God and will do everything in his power to cause us to defect. His attacks are relentless and merciless. His temptations are unending and his techniques are deceptive and deadly. And in Deuteronomy 13:1-18, Moses warns the people of Israel that the enemy will prove highly resourceful, using the least likely sources to convince them to abandon God. The call to commit idolatry doesn’t necessarily come from expected sources. Moses lists the prophet, a close friend or family member, and the society as a whole as three possible threats to their faithfulness to God. If the people didn’t remain alert to the threat, they would find themselves drawn in and dragged down the path of apostasy.
