Man-Eating Zombies? No, But Likely Demonic Influence

Japanese Demon Portrayal


The rash of human-eating and other gross crimes has gotten some to wonder about zombies:

After gory incidents, online ‘zombie’ talk grows

Published June 03, 2012     Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. –  First came Miami: the case of a naked man eating most of another man’s face. Then Texas: a
mother accused of killing her newborn, eating part of his brain and biting off three of his toes. Then Maryland, a college student telling police he killed a man, then ate his heart and part of his brain.

It was different in New Jersey, where a man stabbed himself 50 times and threw bits of his own intestines at police. They pepper-sprayed him, but he was not easily subdued.

He was, people started saying, acting like a zombie. And the whole discussion just kept growing, becoming a topic that the Internet couldn’t seem to stop talking about…The cases themselves are anything but funny. Each involved real people either suspected of committing unspeakable acts or having those acts visited upon them for reasons that have yet to be figured out.

Police Seek Witnesses In Causeway Cannibal Attack

Why? Why did the man attack the other? Why were they naked? Why did the attacker turn into a cannibal on the causeway?

Some believe he was under the influence of heavy drugs.  The head of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police, Armando Aguilar, said cases related to the type of drugs known as “bath salts” are not new locally.

“We have seen, already, three or four cases that are exactly like this…In the cases Aguilar mentioned, he said the people have all taken their clothing off, been extremely violent with what seemed to be super-human strength, even using their jaws as weapons.

It is not zombies, the so-called “living dead,” that are causing this.

This appears to be the result of people, who may possibly also be being influenced by demons.  And if some of them have “super-human strength,” while certain drugs seem to be able to induce this, scripture shows that so can demonic possession:

2 And when He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no one could bind him, not even with chains, 4 because he had often been bound with shackles and chains. And the chains had been pulled apart by him, and the shackles broken in pieces; neither could anyone tame him. 5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones.  (Mark 5:2-5)

Problems were prophesied in the last days:

1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons (1 Timothy 4:1)

1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!  (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

People, whether possesed by demons or not, there were those prophesied to be despisers of good in the last days.  Eating peoples’ faces certainly shows loving oneself and despising others.  Notice also:

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.   (Galatians 5:19-21)

2 you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.  (Ephesians 2:2-3)

Satan is “the prince of the power of the air” and influences people to be “children of wrath.”

The precise reason why people have done the horrible acts are not always certain.  But it is certain that those that do, do not understand love or the meaning of life.
