A new medical controversy struck the world this week. We are informed that in 2017, a team of elite doctors and experts will perform a human head transplant. Although this news may strike us a hoax at first, we should not be surprised that this may be the truth. Men have been trying to “play God” for quite a while with their search for immortality and superior human complexion like Captain America. It seems that today’s medical world is obsessed with trying to perform miracles and creating demigods. Men have tried to glorify themselves through their achievement. Yes, their achievements should be appreciated and respected. However, their achievements would be nothing without the source of their intelligence and abilities. That is source is God. On one hand, such a thing as a head/body transplant may lead to a much better life, if successful. On the other, this means that humanity is not open to accept that there is such a thing God, who has a different plan. Also, is it possible that people who are suffering from these horrible diseases do not have a cure for their illness? We don’t know why they were chosen to suffer from this. We don’t know how getting rid of this disease will impact their life. Is it possible that with this transplant, this person’s life may be affected in a horrible way? If successful, they may have a body in a better health condition, but they may suffer from not being able to adjust to life, procreate, etc. There is a very slim chance of this man coming out of the surgery with a fully functional body, enjoying the gifts of life. What about those who used their illness to bring out great things? Sometimes, we do not see what God has planned for these people. By going forward with this surgery, the medical team is only looking to show themselves off to the world, instead of allowing God to work through them in other, more beneficial areas. Although many may not agree, but we are each given obstacles in life; some more than others. However, this may be for a reason. Is it possible that we are given obstacles so that we can learn to overcome them and grow as a person? Is it possible that we are given obstacles so that we can find a greater “source” to help us these obstacles? Maybe this is a way for us to find truth and see a different type of achievement through the work of God. I agree that humans must make efforts to heal each other and improve the quality of life, but in my opinion, this is beyond helping each other. This is just for someone to get recognition from “playing God”, and not for the benefit of others. The chances of this man having a normal, healthy life are very slim. I believe he is better off seeking help and healing from God than letting someone try to perform the impossible. If we open our minds, we can see the greatness that can be performed by God. There are many miracles in the world, where people are healed with the help of God and their community, but this would not be a “miracle”. This would be the next Frankenstein, who may end not wanting this in the end. I believe this procedure would not only be inhumane, but also ungodly. In the end, this team will not bring glory to themselves or to God, who supplied them with amazing abilities. Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
