Zombies In the Bible, Follow Up

Q. Re: Zombies In The Bible I have a little different take on the subject. The person who asked the question about zombies in the Bible could have been directed to Revelation 9:6 where it clearly states ‘in those days people will seek death, but will not be able to find it; they will long to die, but death will flee from them’. Taken literally, and I see no reason not to, people in total fear and desperation trying to take their own lives will continue walking around with ghastly looking wounds that at any other time in history would have certainly been terminal. Though they will continue in their ability to reason and perhaps function as before they would most assuredly resemble the ‘walking dead’ in all other aspects.

A. Sorry, I disagree. According to the dictionary, a zombie is “the body of a dead person given the semblance of life, but mute and will-less, by a supernatural force, usually for some evil purpose.” The people in Rev. 9:6 won’t fit that description. They won’t have have died and been brought back to life, and they won’t be mute and will-less.

Also the notion that they’ll be walking around with gaping wounds is just an opinion and doesn’t come from Scripture. All it says is they will not be able to die to escape from the terrible pain of the scorpion stings they will have received.
