Today after church I was asked by a young girl who has been visiting if zombies exist. She has obviously been watching too much tv. However, the question arose in the context of a discussion we were having on Christ's second coming. So I answered in this way,
The Bible says that there will be a resurrection at the end of time. When Christ comes again those who have believed and followed Christ will will be raised up in glory, with renewed bodies. They will enter into an estate of eternal bliss where they will enjoy life, wholeness, and happiness.
Those who have done evil, however, will be raised unto condemnation. They will be as close to a zombie as is humanly possible as they will not be glorified or made whole. They will be resurrected, but they will enter into an eternal state of death and dying. Their flesh will not be renewed like the saints. Rather the damned will be in a constant state of decay and the miseries of their sins will follow them for the duration of time.
