reminds us that man has turned his back on his Creator.
It is a warning that, unless he repents, unless he repairs the malfunction in him and in his brother, he faces the final suffering--eternal loss of the throne God had prepared for him.
Pleasure is suffering
Pleasure is a sensation of the sense of feeling--just as is suffering--and so pleasure can be placed under the same category as suffering.
There are innumerable stages of the sensation of feeling--the sense of touch.
It can be said then, that the spectrum of touch, ranges from pleasure to pain.
For those who advocate the removal of suffering from the fate of humanity, what then of the warning signals (pain) from malfunctioning organs of the body and what then of physical pleasure?
The point I am trying to make, is that, to remove suffering from a malfunctioning creature, the sense of touch would have to be removed. Even then, death would still follow!!!

Or perhaps they advocate
that the malfunctioning creature
cease to malfunction
and return to
the perfect creation
given to Adam and Eve,

thereby removing suffering by having removed sinfulness from mankind?
For suffering comes our of sinfulness.
And so we have come the full circle for they are thus advocating Thy Kingdom come; Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven; deliver us from evil.
Blame Adam
There are those who say that Adam rebelled against The Almighty, NOT THEMSELVES. Why then, they argue, should the result of Adam's rebellion come down upon them?
On the suggestion that they would have done the same as did Adam, they contend that no-one can presume that.
Are they themselves sinners?
Yes, they admit, but they remain unconvinced that that proves they would have done the same as Adam.
And so, they cling to their claim that they are suffering when the original sin was Adam's, not theirs!
The previous points I have made here, are ignored and this claim persists.
They are unable to blame God directly for the suffering of mankind, although they hint as much, but they blame God for
allowing Adam to sin and so bring suffering upon all humanity!!!

The fact of the matter is
that God did indeed
allow this to happen,
for He has willed
that man and angel
be given
absolute freewill.

In the end, this is the only claim they can truthfully make.
The past, the future.
In allowing rebellion by man and angel, The Almighty was aware--of course--that, through the Suffering of The Son of God,

mankind would be
raised to
a far greater height
in The Kingdom,
then had Adam
not sinned at all.

So that the last state of mankind would be greater then even the original perfect state of Adam and Eve--far greater!
One has to assume then, that, because of suffering, man's destiny has been raised to incomprehensible greatness, greater even then the Angels.

And because God
became Man,
He in turn,
prepared man
to become Divine.

Could this have happened had Adam not sinned?
Perhaps it could.
Perhaps The Eternal-son would have become the Son of Man even if Adam had not sinned.
It would have been a happy affair: no suffering for Adam or for The Son.
Paradise, in the form of the Garden of Eden, would have been the joyful surrounds of all mankind.
Mankind, then, would not have known
good and evil.
P 1 2 17 But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat. For in what day soever thou shalt eat of it, thou shalt die the death.
1 3 4 And the serpent said to the woman: No, you shall not die the death.
1 3 5 For God doth know that in what day soever you shall eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened: and you shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil.
P
There would have been no Golgotha, no Cross, no Resurrection; no need for The One Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and Her Sacraments, Priesthood and Doctrine.
While that seems acceptable to many, if it means getting rid of suffering, I have to contend that, even should Adam have not sinned and even should The Son of God become Man in the Paradise of Eden, with Adam and his seed, and even while the state of mankind would still have been open to share Divinity--because Christ came as Man--the height of man
