Excellent comments by everyone.
The offer God makes to the whole world is called Substitutionary Atonement. It is denied to Jehovah’s Witnesses by their leadership.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him – 2 Cor. 5: 21
Jesus' contract states in so many words: “My unending LIFE for yours. I will take your punishment due you if you will take my life inside of you”….hence the significance of eating his “flesh” and drinking his “blood” (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit).... The key point is that an exchange takes place here.
“Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament [contract] in my blood: this do ye [all of you]”
This is a very real contract that is unto the death of both parties. It is a BLOOD COVENANT in the fullest possible meaning of the term. It is sealed by the death of BOTH signatories. In the case of Jesus – on Calvary Hill; and in the case of humans who accept the offer – they die as unto themselves. They give up the rights to themselves and invite God into their lives.
Christ substitutes in our place on the Cross for the wages of sin that is due us, and we become the “righteousness of God” due him, since we are made in his image. We cannot do it ourselves. The LAW proved that. It is simply impossible. So, God offers to do it for us. It is a very gracious offer.
The individual is no longer the Captain of his or her own life, God is; making you debt-free. This also means that any other person, creed, or religion is ALSO no longer the boss of your life.
"Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed". - Jesus
It is a very simple offer and easy to understand.
Jesus ALONE paid our debt. The Watchtower didn't. Since no other contract is offered in the New Testament, if we try to make anyone (or any thing) else a party to the contract other than Jesus, the contract is null and void.
The enemy has done back flips for 2000 years trying to squeeze in another party to the contract..., Mary, the Pope, Infant Baptism, The Governing Body, the Mormon Priest hood, your good works etc. ..... anything except Christ Alone.
The contractual additions are nothing but idols and that is why they are so staunchly defended. The enemy knows that all of those false contracts are worthless.
