The Kingdom of God

Posted by Roberta Grimes • January 12, 2019 • 17 Comments

Recently we sat at the feet of the Lord and listened as He taught His flock. Among other things, freshly listening to Him made us realize that He was bent on achieving the almost immediate arrival of the kingdom of God on earth. He expected His spiritual revolution to start small and then grow rapidly,... Read More

You Shall Know the Truth

The first time I reached my mother through a medium she said, “You were right about everything!” That was good to hear, but it made me groan because this woman had resisted all my efforts to convince her she would survive her death. I had read to her from The Fun of Dying. I had... Read More

Listening to Jesus

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 29, 2018 • 41 Comments

I read frequent communications from three very different clergymen. One is an eloquent Catholic monk who has devoted his life to elevating whatever he finds to be of value in Catholicism while he happily ignores the rest. The second is a pastor who trumpets all the mainline Protestant ideas and especially insists that Jesus died... Read More

Sitting at His Feet

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 22, 2018 • 27 Comments

A week ago came one of those moments when you really help me grow. The previous week I had published a blog post on scientific cluelessness that had been months in the making, was rich with linked articles, and was a lot of fun to write; and it had attracted precisely one commenter and not...

Growing Spiritually

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 01, 2018 • 16 Comments

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

Am I an Atheist?

Posted by Roberta Grimes • November 17, 2018 • 27 Comments

My first blog post was made five years ago. Wow, time flies! I shared with you then my transformative experience at the age of eight that has so profoundly shaped my life, and looking back now at that rookie post makes me smile. I didn’t even add pictures! Extraordinary experiences like mine remain forever present... Read More

Is There a God?

Posted by Roberta Grimes • November 10, 2018 • 25 Comments

The worst barrier between humankind and our ability to understand reality is the fact that we cannot ask the greatest of all questions factually. If we ask that question as it is asked in the title of this post, and even if we assume the question refers to the Christian God and not to Vishnu... Read More

I don’t say this often enough, but I love you. I cannot get over how wonderful it is to have you in my life! Just seeing an email from you with a question to answer makes me smile. Reading your personal story that leads to how you found me – and how I was able... 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
