A real-life cannibal is interviewed in this video. That’s right, a human-flesh eating murderer named Issei Sagawa of Japan.
The arrest of cannibal Issei Sagawa arrest.
I was surfing youtube and randomly came across this interview. The contents are gruesome, grim, disgusting, disheartening and evil, so viewer discretion is advised. If you are someone who is easily put into despair by news reports of murders and innocent victims then definitely steer clear of watching this video.
Likewise, those who are faint-of-heart should exercise caution, and those who do not want to get down or depressed with violent, horrific subject matter should think twice before watching (I also warn you NOT to google image his name, you’ll regret it). For everyone else, this is a fascinating, scary, disturbing look into the mind of a cannibal and a murderer.
I personally enjoy watching real-life crime and murder-investigation stories, although you have to pace yourself as watching too much can get into your head and is a bad thing. Even so, I found some of this particular video interview with a cannibal hard to watch. It’s just so sad, when you know that a young girl was murdered, and for exactly no reason.
One of the most fascinating parts of this interview however is in the beginning, when the cannibal is describing the evil that lurks within himself… the way he explains it, he believes he must be from another world. He says it is as if he comes from a planet of cannibals, and was dropped here on earth…
We know that all evil extends from Satan, evil spirits, demons and Fallen Angels. Those beings who are forever apart from God, and in whom no good exists. They seek only to do evil and compel unGodliness in human people.
Human beings can always be saved and their lives can be turned around if only they’d turn to Jesus Christ to heal their evil minds and cover their sins (see Christian-murderer Saul>Paul from the Bible)… But without that knowledge, you get this. This man believes he is from another dimension. And he is partially correct. The demonic spirit that inhabits him and speaks to him and convinces him to do these evil things IS from another dimension.
Are demons cannibals? Let me flip that question on it’s head. Would you be surprised if Satan and his demonic hordes ate each other and others? The Bible says this about Satan, “He roams the Earth like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” I think the answer to that question is pretty clear.
If evil men will kill others for their own personal enjoyment, or desire to eat the flesh of another human (even an innocent woman or girl), what more evil things do you believe the demonic realm is capable of? It is very clear to me that this man is lost in a sea of demonic possession/oppression.
It makes me wonder what would have happened if someone would have preached the gospel to him, and told him that God’s rules forbid the killing of your fellow man.
And I wonder if the outcome would’ve been different had someone advised him to fear God, the only one who can condemn your soul to Hell forever. The power of Jesus Christ has already been proven to change the perspective and the course of a murderer and to compel them to not commit the most heinous of crimes, but how will they hear to listen without a preacher? Very sad to think about.
Even so, we should pray for this man and for the family of his victim, and always remember to lead people you encounter who are capable of evil things to the light. Whether you can ultimately prevent it is an open question, as even Jesus Christ Himself could not save those who don’t want to be saved (even when God was standing amongst them IN THE FLESH), but at the very least it gives them the option of choosing another course in life. It is then entirely up to them, to choose God over Satan.
