Liberating-Jesus---CoverWith all the terrorist threats, bombings, random shootings, and religious wars going on these days, isn’t it about time humanity began reflecting on the REAL teachings of the Great Master Jesus once again? I feel that the book, “Liberating Jesus,” which I am reviewing here, is extremely timely! And this is coming from someone (myself) who does not practice any religion at all. And so if you read this book you will realize that all religions have done is to obscure the true teachings of God / Jesus! So I feel, along with the author, that it is high time for a Reset!

The purpose of the book “Liberating Jesus” by Roberta Grimes is to extricate the teachings of Jesus from the dogma of Christianity. The time for this book is NOW! Roberta Grimes’ story and how she came to write this book is intriguing. She had previously written two books about the Afterlife: “The Fun of Dying” and The Fun of Staying in Touch. If you’ve followed my writings over the past several years, you’ll know that the study of The Afterlife has been a primary interest of mine and I have read hundreds of books on the subject. And so when I discovered that Roberta Grimes had written a ‘channeled’ book from Jesus, I was intrigued. Normally I would avoid any book that had seemingly religious overtones, but somehow this one stood out and I am glad that I looked deeper.

Here are a few accolades from Amazon: “WOW – What a revelation! This book will open your eyes to what we should be R-Grimesfocusing on – Jesus and his message of love and forgiveness. We should be listening to His message, not what religious dogma tells us.” “Liberating Jesus” will make even an ATHEIST believe because…IT MAKES SENSE! Love is all there ever was and ever will be! You do not have to be a Christian to be moved by this book. It transcends religion.” “Liberating! Perfect title for this book, because it frees you from the limitations that Christianity has placed on us.” “Grimes’ book makes an important contribution to understanding the New Revelation by showing that the teachings of Jesus are consistent with what has been revealed by mediums, afterlife researchers, and quantum theorists.” “And that message pertains to the end of materialism, the end of organized religion as we know it, and development of a personal spirituality.”

The story of just how Roberta Grimes became a channel for Jesus is told in one appendix of the book and would take up space than I have room for here, but it certainly provides a great foundation and credibility for how the book came to be. She had always been very religious and even gained a degree in religious studies in college. After her extensive research into the Afterlife and the publishing of two books on the Afterlife she began to realize that her fundamentalist Christian beliefs could not hold up to what she had learned about life from high level beings on the Otherside.
There were just too many cross-correspondences that proved that the spiritual truths she was learning seemed to outline a far greater truth over what mainstream religion had been teaching for centuries. At that moment I guess you could say that she had a ‘spiritual crises.’ This crises culminated in early 2015 when she had a reading from a well-known medium so she could speak to her dead mother. And it was during that reading that she was put in contact with her primary spiritual guide, Thomas Jefferson.

T-JeffersonShe had always had an affinity for Thomas Jefferson and many people know that Thomas Jefferson was famous for assembling his own version of a “Red Letter Bible” which was designed to highlight just the words and philosophy of Jesus and nothing else. According to smithsonianmag.com “Jefferson was devoted to the teachings of Jesus Christ. But he didn’t always agree with how they were interpreted by biblical sources, including the writers of the four Gospels, whom he considered to be untrustworthy correspondents. So Jefferson created his own gospel by taking a sharp instrument, perhaps a penknife, to existing copies of the New Testament and pasting up his own account of Christ’s philosophy, distinguishing it from what he called “the corruption of schismatizing followers.”

So to make a long story short, soon after making contact with her guide, Thomas Jefferson, she began having her own early morning automatic writing sessions with Jefferson and then also with Jesus as well. And so this was how Liberating Jesus was written. In effect, Roberta grimes had become a modern day prophet or channel. The objective was to provide a modern day revelation concerning the clearest possible message coming from God/Jesus for humankind today.

According to grimes, (We are basically discussing the four Gospels of the New Testament here.) we can dispense with most of the Old Testament which is confusing and fear-based. Jesus came to teach us Love and Forgiveness. Period. The Churches have distorted and confused the Bible and the teachings of Jesus to gain control of the masses. And so far it has worked. However, all we have to do is look at the state of our world today to witness the results of that teaching.

This may come as a surprise to some of you, but Jesus and his philosophy was never meant to be ‘owned’ by any religion. The current crop of Christian churches (so-called) claim to preach the un-erring gospel of God and His representative on Earth, Jesus. At last count there were over 4,000 divisions of Christianity. Can they all be right? (No) The problem is that most all of them grossly distort the truth based upon a fear-based egoic point of view for use as a control mechanism of the masses and this book, Liberating Jesus sets out to show us the Truth of what Jesus was really trying to communicate 2,000 some years ago.

I leave you with a quote from Roberta’s book: “The Gospel teachings of Jesus are our surest route to rapid spiritual growth. Until we actually begin to live by the philosophy that Jesus taught, humankind will continue to flounder. More generations will be born and die while making too little spiritual progress, and we will spiral toward the religious war that was predicted long ago in a madman’s ravings. God’s Kingdom on earth still is possible! But it requires that we leave religious dogmas behind as the spiritual crutch that they are so we can work together to elevate humankind toward God’s level of awareness. Jesus is calling upon Christians now to spread His teachings to the modern world. And if you have read this far, then perhaps He is in particular calling to you.”

If you want to be part of the solution for the problems of the world, hit the Reset button now and get this book, read it and practice what it says!
