No, I cannot. We are designed “in his image” and pain is part of that image, whether it be physical or emotional. Pain is an experience that will enable us to grow and learn and in the end get close to Him
Anxiety also helps us to know when something is going too far.
We need to experience pain to fully see the danger. God designed us with pain because in His infinite wisdom, He knew us humans needed the experience to learn.
There may be other options but they can fail if they are tech or battery based. Pain is something ingrained and natural in us, really in all living things it is a totally natural instict.
A personal companion like a health aide to give warning or a service animal to warn us of personal danger.
We can see the results of danger with our eyes, by observing the results of danger from what happens to others. But I don’t think this is as effective as our own personal experience with pain as a warning against danger.
Trying to find a solution to that option suggests that I could think of something more perfect than God’s design. Man will find a way to mess up any man made defense, just as the people in the study opted to turn off their warnings.
No. It reminds me of a saying: “No pain, no gain.”
Not at all. We clearly need this in our lives. If we did not then God would not have designed us in such a way that we feel pain.
No, I can not think of other options to pain as a defense against danger.
God’s love is the only option to truly deal with pain as a defense against danger. Why do we think that we know better than God? The researcher’s warning system didn’t work because people need to look differently at the purpose of pain and their wellbeing.
Dr. Brand and his team invested years of study and research funded by large amounts of money to attempt to re-create a way to sense pain so that lepers could avoid hurting themselves. Yet they failed to find a solution as effective as God’s design. The words from Psalm 139:13-14 reflect the wonder of what God has done:
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
