Becoming gods

“Zuul the Gatekeeper of Gozer in Ghostbusters” – a demigod and minion of Gozer, The Destructor. It was worshiped by the Mesopotamians, Sumerians and Hittites in 6000 BC, along with Gozer.

“Hercules” – Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.

“Thor” – The powerful but arrogant god Thor is cast out of Asgard to live amongst humans in Midgard (Earth), where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders.

“Wrath of the Titans” – Perseus braves the treacherous underworld to rescue his father, Zeus, captured by his son, Ares, and brother Hades who unleash the ancient Titans upon the world.

“Immortal – Ad Vitam” – In the distant future, Earth is occupied by ancient gods and genetically altered humans. When a god is sentenced to death he seeks a new human host and a woman to bear his child.

What do these summaries have in common? They are all movies about gods.  Why are people so enamored by the idea of gods, battles between gods, and the possibility of human beings being either part god or gods in human form?  Why do people continually insist on making God in their own image?   This lesson will discuss this and many other questions as we look to the Bible for answers.

Lesson Objective:  By the end of the lesson biblical the student should understand the subtle danger of self-worship.  The student will be reminded of who God is and who the student is.
