"When most people hear the word idolatry, they think of pagans worshiping statues and assume, "That's one subject that can't apply to me." Oh, yes it can. You don't have to keep a carved, wooden tiki idol in your backyard to be an idolater. You don't have to visit a Buddhist shrine. Any time you worship the thing God created as a god, that's idolatry. We can get so caught up in the things of this world - jobs, money, people, material things - that we forget our purpose here on earth. We should live in the world but not of the world. Spend some time analyzing your walk with the Lord. Are there things that you are placing above your relationship with God? Ask Him to reveal things in your life that are being placed above God." - Tony Evans 1 John 2:15-17 15 Do not love the world or anything in the world.

The Fantastic Four Battle Mole Man From Marvel Comics Some might think that the rebirth of the super heroes at Marvel with FANTASTIC FOUR #1 rang an immediate death knell for the giant monsters who had ruled the roost for the previous few years, but that’s not quite the case. In fact, the two carried on side by side for a while. FANTASTIC FOUR #1 marks an interesting merging of the two genres as Stan Lee and Jack Kirby pitted their brand new first family of comics up against, you guessed it, giant monsters. Just look at the cover if you don’t believe us! The issue from 1961 began with each member of the team already equipped with their powers out in New York City until a mysterious figure sent out a Fantastic Four flare that grabbed their attention. Upon the group getting together the reader discovered that Reed Richards called the meeting. After recounting their cosmic ray-filled trip to outer space that granted them amazing powers, the quartet focused on the task at hand:

Backstory: Gorgo is a 1961 British-American science fiction monster film in Technicolor directed by Eugène Lourié. The film focuses on Gorgo, a young sea monster brought back to London for exploitation, and Ogra, his even larger mother, who rampages across London to search for him. Charlton's Gorgo comic book series based on the 1961 British-American giant monster film Gorgo, which ran from 1961 to 1965 with 23 issues. The first issue is an adaptation of the film, while the rest are original stories pitting Gorgo and his mother Ogra against various monsters, aliens, and human armies. The comic book series has two sequels, Gorgo's Revenge with one issue and Return of Gorgo with two issues. Every issue of Gorgo was written by Joe Gill. Steve Ditko, the co-creator of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, illustrated eight issues (1-3, 11, and 13-16). - From Wikipedia After a seaquake, a huge lizard-like creature walked out of the ocean and almost destroyed a fishing village i
