DELIVER US FROM ALL EVIL,
DELIVER US FROM THE EVIL ONE
Jesus violently cleansed the temple of traders who were using God's house for wrong purposes. We are temples of God's Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17. The Holy Spirit has no comfort living with objects that do not please God. It was customary in the Old Testament to destroy all that was detestable in God's sight. It did not change in the New Testament.

On a deeper level:
Brethren, We're required to repent to God for walking outside "His" will. Anything outside of God's will is sin regardless of whether it was willfully done or was out of ignorance. It was common in the Old Testament to confess all sins including those done through ignorance. Even sins of parents and ancestors were confessed. These were sins none of them had anything to do with. The people that arranged, out of ignorance for the Lord Jesus Christ to be killed also needed to repent although the Lord Jesus Christ had already forgiven them. He said, "Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing," Luke 23:34
Yet they still had to repent. "Now, brother, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders. But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the Prophets, saying that "His" Christ would suffer. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord." Acts 3:17-19 Repentance requires ceasing to associate with the sin. This includes throwing away any books, literature or multimedia that embrace non-biblical matters. It was customary in the Old Testament to destroy all that was detestable in God's sight. It did not change in the New Testament.

Christian converts in Ephesus who had practiced sorcery and divination were asked to destroy the materials that they used. They destroyed them publicly. "A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. when they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total come to fifty thousand drachmas. In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power," Acts 19:19-20 "God" Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of "His" dear Son. "Jesus" Col. 1:13
