Well, those Christians are confused b/c Jeremiah 10 is talking about the heathen and their idol worship of trees and things made of gold and silver, etc. The main theme there and admonitions was against idolatry....not trees or gold or silver..

Yes, I know that, but Jeremiah is admonishing them from even having them there, whether or no. Do you despise his advice?

Jeremiah's flaw was that he simply wasn't as persuasive as he could have been had he tried harder. Spent too much time on minutiae like trees and not enough on how much of a threat the Babylonians posed.

Being distracted with his rhetorical flourishes the king, his sons and their advisors were distracted from purusing the business of the kingdom.
