Autel's comment on 2013-02-13 00:48:29:

Moses was able to reason with God in the desert during the journey to Canaan. When the Israelites sinned, Deuteronomy 9:2, Isaiah said, come let us reason together, saith the Lord (Isaiah 1:18). God is always at the righteous and truth side. And always second anything that brings glory and honour to His throne. Whatever seems right. The burning of the incense I believe was taking a different dimension altogether. The people were revering the image as time passed by rather than God Himself. That compelled Hezekiah to destroy those things.
