Destroying Idolatry

Destroying idolatry? Are you sure that is something we are commanded to to today?

For the same reason as stated (our contemporary laws and governments), we cannot do away with objects and places of idolatry that are owned by others. We cannot, for example, smash the statue of Buddha in our neighborhood Chinese restaurant, nor burn down the Hindu temple across town.

After quoting a number of passages encompassing destroying idols and places of idol worship in the Hebrew Scriptures, I go on to look at what the New Covenant Scriptures say, before talking about how we should apply it all in our day.

Mitzvah I6
