I've occasionally seen people claim that korbanos won't resume in the time of Mashiach. The people I usually see mentioned in association with this claim are Rambam and Rav Kook.
The obvious difficulty in this position is that korbanos are a Torah obligation, and we're required to bring them every day. I've never seen anyone even try to reconcile this position with the halachic obligation to bring korbanos, which is clear in the Torah and through the Mishnah, Gemara, Rishonim (Rambam included), and Achronim.
Does anyone explain how this claim can even make sense? Or is it just another, less visible version of "Shabbat/kashrut/whatever may have made sense in the Old Country, but isn't feasible or relevant in America"?
I am not looking for:
- Answers that only contain philosophical statements about why korbanos are not an optimal state of affairs. I'm aware of the Rambam's reason for korbanos in the Moreh, though I haven't seen it inside. If you can bring a reason why this can override a halachic obligation I guess that would be an answer, though I'm skeptical of that possibility.
- Answers that say that the Rambam and Rav Kook didn't actually believe korbanos won't continue. That may be (/probably is) true, but it's not relevant to this question.
