Nehushtan?

from Spurgeon's sermon, "ICONOCLAST" #960.

"Hezekiah removed the pagan shrines, smashed the
 sacred pillars, and knocked down the Asherah poles.
 He broke up the bronze serpent that Moses had made,
 because the people of Israel had begun to worship
 it by burning incense to it. The bronze serpent was
 called Nehushtan. Hezekiah trusted in the Lord,
 the God of Israel." 2 Kings 18:4-5

There still exists the very common idolatry
of superstitious reverence of buildings.
It is thought that inside certain walls God is
more peculiarly present than outside, where
the trees are growing and the birds singing.

Our forefathers protested against this by
never calling their buildings, 'churches'.
They knew they could not be; they knew that
'churches' were companies of faithful men and
women. They called the places of their usual
worship "meeting houses;" that is what they
were, and nothing more.

The veneration of....
  buildings,
  pulpits,
  altars,
  pews,
  cushions,
  tables,
  candlesticks,
  organs,
  cups,
  plates,
  etc.,
is sheer idolatry.

Our sires also stood out against another
idolatry which still survives in England;
namely, the observing of days and months.

Certain days are set apart as holy, and observed
with great reverence by those calling themselves
Christians. They have like Israel of old, when
under legal bondage, new moons, and appointed
feasts, for which they claim great respect, but to
which none whatever is due.

Our sires said, "This is not of Scripture, therefore it
is of man, therefore it is will worship, and idolatrous!"

And they showed their contempt of "the commandments
of men" by an open disregard of holy days. And we shall
do well in this respect and in all others to maintain their
pure testimony.

Whenever we see 'superstition' in any shape,
we must not flatter the folly, but according to our
ability act the iconoclast's part and denounce it.

There is much idol breaking for Christians to do!

"Hezekiah removed the pagan shrines, smashed the
 sacred pillars, and knocked down the Asherah poles.
 He broke up the bronze serpent that Moses had made,
 because the people of Israel had begun to worship it
 by burning incense to it. The bronze serpent was
 called Nehushtan. Hezekiah trusted in the Lord,
 the God of Israel." 2 Kings 18:4-5

Away with your idolized brazen serpent! away with it!

Go into the temple of your hearts, and use the hammer
a little there!
