I have to admit i am a little confused, probably 80% of the people who have replied seem to be atheist or agnostic. Yet frequent a JW forum.
I believe the way to salvation is through God, and to those who have said it is a contradiction that to get eternal life you have to be baptized.
To that i would say this.
In any religion does partaking in the bread and the wine get you any closer to God... the answer is NO
It is what it reminds us of, the sacrifice of Christ to save us. The bread and wine is simply the catalyst to remind us of that fact and without remembering Jesus in our life taking the B & W is moot.
Just like baptism, does being dunked in water do anything to save any of us... the answer is NO
However it is a symbol of the fact that we have dedicated our life to serving God, his Son and his teachings.
So i believe if any man or woman dedicates their lives to God, Christ and his teachings even though they have not been physically "baptized" the effect is the same, because it is the mental and spiritual baptism which is important.
To others who say that they no longer believe because there is no proof, to that i would say you were wrong.
For me i only need to look at the prophecies of Daniel. In which it is outlined the passing of the torch from one super power to the next first in Daniel 2 then expanded on in Daniel 7 and then even further later on in the book.
Even Roman scribes have mentioned Christ often referred to as Christus... corroborating that he did exist.
There are a lot more i could go into.
The blessings whatever you may believe they will be are not for one group of people or one religion but for those who believe and love God and his son and follow the teachings
I hope i have explained myself
