August 26, 1 Kings 22:41-50 Jehoshaphat, king of Judah

For the most part Jehoshaphat was a good king, he tracked down and removed all of the cult prostitutes and walked upright before God.
Yet we're told that he did not tear down the high places, places where people still worshipped idols.  This is an interesting argument, we're all given free choice to chooe God or not.  So from a standpoint of allowing this freedom is it wrong to let people worship false gods?  Here in the US one of our founding principles was freedom of religion, although today that freesom stops at Christianity and Judaism, a political subject that could take days to discuss.  I believe the scriptrure teaches the worship of false gods is dangerous to both a people and nation and it should be stopped.  Especially for Israel where God told them several times not to allow idols.  There is a responsibility to the people and to God.
