It's just symbolism, done in remembrance of what Jesus has done for us. That he shed his blood and sacraficed his body beneath Roman whips and torture in order that we might know God. When I take communion I know that it is only juice and bread. It's a time to stop and reflect on the wonderous gift our Lord has bestowed on us. To know that it is Christ in me that allows me this wonderful relationship with my creator, that by his blood and body I can be seen as righteous before the Lord God. There are probably some who disagree, however scripturally it's just a remebrance thing.

Well don't take communion. Pretty easy to avoid. This is my last post on this thread as I don't see how you equate communion with cannabalism. It was a metaphor Jesus used to help the disciples understand later on why he had died. When Jesus says take the plank out of your own eye first, do you think he meant that you may literally have a plank in your eye? This argument doesn't even seem logical to me. C ya
