Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 15, 2018 • 25 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

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

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

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

Moving Toward Political Peace

Elissa Slotkin is the Democratic candidate in Michigan’s 8th District Race. She had “assumed that her campaign for Congress would be built around pocketbook issues such as the rising cost of health care, stagnant wages and unaffordable college tuition.” Instead, her campaign events are “therapy sessions.” “Voters say they are tired of the anger and...

Fighting Righteous Indignation

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 17, 2018 • 20 Comments

A vile plague of fear, anger, and hatred increasingly oppresses the world, and it especially bedevils the United States. What may not be obvious at first is the fact that most of what is behind all this strife is people’s adamantly held and forcefully expressed personal beliefs. In other words, their righteous indignation. Because these... Read More

Triumphing Over the Tribulation

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 12, 2018 • 28 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.
