In I Kings 13 a prophet of God who was told by God not to eat bread or drink water at a certain place. But another lying prophet told the prophet of God the he was to go to his house to eat bread and drink water. The prophet of God obeyed the other prophet instead of obeying what God had told him directly. The prophet of God lost his life to a lion on his way back home. We are responsible to God for knowing and obeying God’s Word to us—not for obeying someone else’s “word” for us.
