Real Presence or Email
Here is another of the many ways that I find I am no longer a Protestant: if Communion is merely symbolic, if it has no power to strengthen us (and believe me I need ALL the help I can get) what is the point? If one sees it as merely symbolic there is no reason to have Communion more than 4 times a year. As an evangelical I believed it was the Bible, God's Word, that strengthened us. And it does to a point. But if all it took was God's Word, would he have needed to come down here and die for us? He could have just sent us an email. Come to think of it, He did! He sent the Law and the prophets. Didn't work then, doesn't work now.
