Living in the Kingdom of God on Earth

Posted by Roberta Grimes • April 06, 2019 • 35 Comments

It is so hard to convey to you what living in the kingdom of God on earth will be like that we have spent a  few preparatory months in  sharing background information. There has been so much that you needed to know in order for what we say here to make sense that if you... Read More

The Kingdom of God on Earth (Part IV)

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 02, 2019 • 27 Comments

The kingdom of God was the Lord’s obsession. He uses the term more than fifty times through all four Gospels, and He refers to “the kingdom of heaven” almost thirty times in the Gospel of Matthew. Since the terms seem to mean the same thing to Jesus, this is likely another translation glitch so to... Read More

The Genuine God

The question of whether there is an Uncaused Cause is settled. Not even the most closed-minded scientist disputes the fact that the universe exists, so clearly something must have caused it! But scientists refuse to take seriously what seems to be the next big question. When pressed to identify the Uncaused Cause that brought forth... Read More

The Extinction of the Ego

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 15, 2018 • 56 Comments

I am coming to see that until we each can find a way to vanquish our ego, achieving very much spiritual growth may be difficult or impossible for us. And our inability to grow spiritually would be calamitous for all the world! Growing spiritually is the reason why we even come to earth at all,... Read More

Growing Spiritually

You may wonder why an afterlife researcher would write so ardently about the teachings of Jesus. Until recently I would have wondered about that, too! I have likely spent as much of my life studying the Bible as I have spent studying the afterlife evidence, but until a few years ago my two intense hobbies... Read More

The Lord’s Christianity

Posted by Roberta Grimes • November 24, 2018 • 26 Comments

Those that we used to think were dead tell us that achieving more rapid spiritual growth is the reason why we are born to live brief lives in this spiritual gym. They also tell us that Jesus is genuine, and they confirm that He told us the truth about God, reality, death, the afterlife, and... Read More

Scientism vs. Religionism

Posted by Roberta Grimes • October 27, 2018 • 19 Comments

It has been a little while since we last took a swipe at the Luddite field of scientific inquiry, but I keep finding on-point articles. Please indulge me while I share another of them now. The reason why I call my radio show and podcast Seek Reality is that everyone should be doing just that!... Read More

Becoming Good Citizens of the World

Posted by Roberta Grimes • October 13, 2018 • 18 Comments

A friend who often comments here has asked me why in this series of posts I have talked about the United States alone, when in his view it is time for Americans to become good citizens of all the world. He is precisely right! Imagine a world that has become one neighborhood, everyone watching out... Read More

The Truth Will Set Us Free

Posted by Roberta Grimes • October 06, 2018 • 30 Comments

Political divisions in America are worse now than they ever before have been, which makes it hard for us to see that we are witnessing the dawning fulfillment of the greatest dream ever dreamed in all of human history. After ten millennia during which humankind groveled beneath the swords of despots and the awful reign... Read More

Faith vs. Facts

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 29, 2018 • 61 Comments

It may not at first be obvious to you that the reason why righteous indignation is such a deadly plague in America now is the insidious influence of faith-based thinking. Theories abound that the decline of Christianity may be behind the increase in political extremism in America, but they vary as to why. It is... Read More
