The burning of the images may seem extreme at first, especially in view of the intrinsic value of the gold or other materials used in making the image. It must be remembered that the worship of idols actually involved demon-worship (1 Corinthians 10:19,20), and the apparently lifeless image might well be "possessed" by a very real demonic spirit. This may be relevant today to the careless purchase of pagan religious objects which are actually replicas of objects of pagan worship in pantheistic religions.
