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

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...

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

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

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. 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

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

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

Believing is Not Seeing

Posted by Roberta Grimes • October 10, 2017 • 28 Comments

(I had hoped to do a blog post now about the 2017 AREI Symposium, but I’d like to include a link for 2018 and that website isn’t quite ready. Please watch this space!!) Many of those who contact me will ask me what I “believe” about this or that. Some of those wrestling with the... Read More
