We have a case here where a man says he is the second coming of Christ - just after running over and killing six people, injuring dozens more. He is diagnosed possibly as being schizo. Seems there may have been a fair bit of drug use involved as well.

I don't think anyone in his "right" mind would do such a thing. When is say "right" mind, I mean that which is close to our true (loving) nature.

I suspect that drug use opened up his psychological doorway to the other side and he got possessed. It's terrible stuff to go through and the horror it caused was far worse.
It does not sound like Demon possession to me but just mental illness and drug abuse.

Unless the Holy Spirit shows us/tells us, we'll never know for sure what the cause is. I'm guessing it's a combination of both. Maybe bi-polar and subsequently attracted some nasty spirit(s) which influenced him. Either way, there's always a chance he can receive a healing in prison (& get saved too).

I don't believe that just because a person is doing evil doesn't mean it's possession, but schizophrenia, from what I know and then think, is when you hear a voice or maybe more talking to you. You might feel like people are reading your mind. You might feel you have superpowers. God already knows the future. It is already there waiting to happen. Just for it to reach that time. The maniac of gadara was possessed. So that man could've been possessed too.

There are also those who believe schizophrenia is spiritual in nature, as in demon possession. This idea comes from the Bible’s accounts of people whose symptoms appear to mirror schizophrenia. While demon possession is possible in some cases, it is unlikely to be the cause for the majority. Schizophrenics do not have a reaction to the name of Jesus, nor do they possess supernatural knowledge. Also, when the biblical accounts are carefully compared to cases of schizophrenia, the symptoms do not truly look the same (see Luke 4:41).

I believe schizophrenia and bipolar are legit mental illnesses and not a form of demonic possession.
