Triumphing Over the Tribulation

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 12, 2018 • 26 Comments

(Before you read this, please read The Tribulation and The Role of Evil in History) What Jesus says about the coming Tribulation is awful. And since we can see now why He is right, we cannot ignore His warning! Perhaps you think the evil we face is actual demons, or you might prefer to blame... Read More

The Tribulation

Posted by Roberta Grimes • August 31, 2018 • 10 Comments

People ask me when Armageddon will happen, and on this point the evidence is clear: the Biblical Armageddon never will happen. I wrote on this topic two years ago in a post entitled Apocalyptic Nonsense, so I won’t rehash it here; but you might read that post if you are not yet clear about the... Read More

Seek Reality

Posted by Roberta Grimes • July 15, 2018 • 10 Comments

Five years ago I began an experiment in radio and podcasting that is central to my life in ways more important than the considerable time that it takes. I am only now becoming aware of the extent to which Seek Reality has shaped my life. I have met so many great experts! Some of the... Read More

Christianity vs. Spiritual Growth

Posted by Roberta Grimes • June 26, 2018 • 28 Comments

Christianity is in a worldwide crisis. European countries are full of empty churches, and the United States is not far behind: studies suggest that barely eighteen percent of Americans regularly go to church. Meanwhile, 27% of Americans say they are “spiritual but not religious,” which is an eight-percentage-point increase in that category in just five... Read More

Softening the Hard Problem

Posted by Roberta Grimes • May 19, 2018 • 21 Comments

Scientists call consciousness “the hard problem” because they have no idea where it comes from, and they have trouble even defining what it is. Scientific American has put out a special issue called “Innovations In: The Biggest Questions in Science,” which is a collection of articles on the state of play in modern scientific investigations...

Rearing Spiritually Healthy Children

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 03, 2017 • 27 Comments

After a supernatural experience at the age of eight I have spent most of my leisure time in two parallel pursuits: exhaustively studying the afterlife evidence, and reading the Christian Bible repeatedly. This is such an odd combination of interests that I may be the only person on earth with the knowledge and experience to... Read More

Dealing with Grief

Posted by Roberta Grimes • August 12, 2017 • 34 Comments

I hear from grieving people almost daily now. Their pain is often so raw that it is nearly unbearable to read their messages, and I realize that since I cannot feel grief myself I am handicapped in my attempts to help them. But I try! Grief is a process. It is composed of a number... Read More

The 2017 AREI Symposium

Posted by Roberta Grimes • May 05, 2017 • 19 Comments

It astonishes me now to realize that I met Craig Hogan just in 2009, and Susanne Wilson and the Zammits in 2014. For decades my obsessive hobby of investigating the afterlife was a lonely slog, with no colleagues and with no one in my life who even cared about what I was learning. I had... Read More

Thinking About Reincarnation

Posted by Roberta Grimes • January 06, 2017 • 39 Comments

One of the most confounding things about studying the afterlife is getting our minds around the fact of reincarnation. And it is a fact. Much as I have tried not to think about it, given my traditional Christian background, the evidence is overwhelming and consistent that each of us lives many earth-lives. Jesus taught it,...

We Live in a Matrix

Posted by Roberta Grimes • October 27, 2016 • 17 Comments

The greatest scientist in the history of the world was Max Planck. He won the 1918 Nobel Prize in physics as the father of quantum mechanics, but that was not his greatest achievement. The most important thing Dr. Planck ever did was to demonstrate based on quantum principles that human consciousness is primary and it... Read More
