Rearing Spiritually Healthy Children

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 03, 2017 • 23 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

It’s Time For a Second Christian Reformation

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 19, 2016 • 20 Comments

It has been half a millennium almost to the day since Martin Luther issued his Ninety-Five Theses that attacked some of Christianity worst excesses. Whether he actually nailed his Theses to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany, is unclear; but just the publication of his complaints began what is known as the... Read More

Faith vs. Transformation

Posted by Roberta Grimes • October 01, 2016 • 22 Comments

Believing in God in a world that worships mainstream science has become so hard that the latest Pew Research Center survey has found a remarkable surge in people who no longer believe in God. Pew has in recent years found more and more folks who were disenchanted with religions; and now, apparently, Pew is discovering... Read More

From My Heart to Yours

Posted by Roberta Grimes • August 15, 2016 • 10 Comments

The Fun of Growing Forever was released last week, having been delayed because at almost the last minute it gained an extraordinary Foreword from Jack Canfield. I can never properly thank him for such an incomparable gift! Now each of the three Fun books has a Foreword by the greatest living expert in its field.... Read More

God and the Materialist Delusion

Posted by Roberta Grimes • June 14, 2016 • 15 Comments

By now we can be certain that the Christian God does not exist. After decades of doing afterlife research and collaborating extensively with other researchers, I can state without equivocation that there is no anthropomorphic God that judges us and condemns us to hell. Wonderfully, though, what exists instead is the loving Spirit that Jesus... Read More

“The Men of Her City Shall Stone Her”

Posted by Roberta Grimes • June 05, 2016 • 27 Comments

I have just read a blog-rant by someone who calls himself a Christian against Jan Crouch, the co-founder of Trinity Broadcasting Network, who recently died. I have no idea what a woman who spent forty years building the largest Christian broadcasting network on earth might have done to offend this Bible-thumper! But he used a... Read More

Apocalyptic Nonsense

Posted by Roberta Grimes • May 09, 2016 • 20 Comments

If you are reading this, then you have survived another predicted Apocalyptic demise. Incredibly, there is a growing movement that takes seriously the Biblical Book of Revelation, and many Christians are so sure the end is nigh they say they won’t bother to vote in November. For those unfamiliar with the Christian Bible, Revelation is... Read More

The Fun of Growing Forever

Posted by Roberta Grimes • April 18, 2016 • 18 Comments

I apologize for the tardiness of this post, but I’ve been finishing my next book and visiting Santa Barbara to form a new friendship. Jack Canfield needs no introduction! His Chicken Soup for the Soul series has sold many millions of books, and Jack in person is engaging and delightful. Here is a video of... Read More

The True Meaning of Easter

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 28, 2016 • 32 Comments

No one who enjoyed last Sunday’s celebrations – all pastel flowers and chocolate eggs and carving a ham on the holiday table – can have given any serious thought to what Easter is supposed to mean. Christians refer to Jesus as our “Savior” and “Redeemer.” Those words so gaily trip off the tongue! God proved... Read More

Out With the Old!

Posted by Roberta Grimes • February 01, 2016 • 15 Comments

Christianity buries the eternal teachings of Jesus in first-century Jewish beliefs. The root of this problem lies in the councils which decided which books to include in the canon that became the Christian Bible. Having majored in early Christian history in college half a century ago, I can tell you that my study of the... Read More
