What Are the Baptiste Family Ministries?
“The Baptiste Family Ministries are our Baptiste Family’s multifaceted efforts to encourage, educate, and coordinate Christian efforts to engage our culture for Jesus Christ and transform it through prayerful, loving and joyful devotion to God as did the First Millennium Christians who transformed the brutal ancient pagan world with the love of Jesus! (laying the Christian and Pro-Life foundations for all modern human rights and democratic freedoms).”
“We are an ordinary family of ordinary people suffering the ordinary range of human weaknesses and brokenness, who are nevertheless aware of the EXTRAORDINARY Love of God for all of us, which makes us desire to respond to that amazing Love in any way we can, using whatever particular gifts and passions, education and means God has given us to do whatever we can to help build God’s adopted human Family on Earth which is meant to embrace all humanity with Divine Love.”
(Some of the Baptiste Family Ministries have already received world-class Christian recognition: On the basis of Peter William John Baptiste’s Donum Veritatis – The Gift of Truth Ministries websites ( http://christian-unity-in-diversity.ourchur.ch , http://giftoftruth.ourchur.ch ) the Baptistes were invited to the ecumenical 6th, 7th and 8th Annual Springtime of Faith Rome Summits, of Catholic and Evangelical “dynamic leaders” meeting with Vatican officials to discuss how to best facilitate the “New Springtime of Faith” so badly needed in “post-Christian” societies; long-time Theology Chair Dr. Alan Schreck of Franciscan University of Steubenville, known worldwide for its approach of “dynamic orthodoxy,” called Donum Veritatis “an effective and important means to spread the faith and to promote Christian unity. It really is a ‘gift’ to the ‘Internet Generation.’ ” )
BAPTISTE FAMILY MINISTRIES was founded May 2015 by Peter William John and Lorelle Baptiste, in recognition of the fact that the part-time ecumenical Christian educational DONUM VERITATIS – THE GIFT OF TRUTH MINISTRIES under the direction of Peter William John Baptiste since 2007, and the casual Christian activist LIFE, TRUTH & UNITY Ministries under the direction of Lorelle Baptiste (which they supported each other in anyway) actually had some important convergent goals which they describe together as “PRO-LIFE 2.0” – taking the Pro-Life Movement to THE NEXT LEVEL, in two different ways which had been developing separately in Peter William’s educational INSTITUTE FOR PROMOTING THE GIFT OF TRUTH ( http://giftoftruth.ourchur.ch ) and Lorelle’s activist CHILDREN OF GOD FOR LIFE CANADA ( http://childrenofgodforlifecanada.ourchur.ch ). Pro-Life 2.0 means both:
1) that “Pro-Life” is no longer just about saving baby human lives threatened by legal abortion – “Pro-Life 2.0” is also about saving democracy itself which is seriously threatened by legal abortion which logically means our governments no longer legally recognize any Inherent Human Right to Live which obligates the State to always protect and ultimately serve human lives – but democracy historically and logically depends upon all human lives without exception being recognized as so immensely valuable that they not only should always be protected from harm, but they even deserve a democratic say in their own government. This approach was developed by Peter William John Baptiste SFO within the course Human Rights and Freedoms: Christianity’s Great Gifts to Western Civilization, part of his Institute for Promoting the Gift of Truth’s series of courses The New Catacombs — Teaching 3rd Millennium Christians To Transform Their Culture with God’s Love the Way the 1st Millennium Christians Did. The Institute had already published material from his treatise The Education Necessary to Preserve Democracy Now Under Attack to its website http://protecthumanrightsandfreedoms.ourchur.ch , which is now the official website of the new (established July 2016) HUMAN RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS FOREVER!, the new “Flagship” of the several Baptiste Family Ministries because the need to stop the freight-train-momentum of “Creeping Totalitarianism” is so great and so wide.
2) That “Pro-Life” is no longer just about attempting to save human babies from being killed by abortion — but “Pro-Life 2.0” is also about raising societal awareness of the full depth of the degradation of humanity wrought by legal abortion in the “Consumer Cannibalism” of the big-money Abortion Industry researching and developing health and beauty (and even some food) products using aborted preborn human corpses, without the public even being informed this is being done (like the Slave Trade before it highly profited from legally devaluing some human lives, and similarly, most did not know the worst of how slavery degraded humans, with many Black humans dying chained closely together in their own waste on slave ships before even getting the chance to be slaves). This approach was developed (and the term “Consumer Cannibalism” was coined) by Lorelle Baptiste in her Life, Truth, and Unity endeavors and investigations, before she discovered the American group Children of God for Life had an established ministry (backed with much research) of raising such awareness of aborted fetal-age human products – products containing or developed using aborted human corpses or aborted human “cell-lines,” with the killed baby’s unique human DNA, artificially grown from the corpses – products sold to the public without their knowledge that these products were made with killed human remains. Lorelle received permission from the American Children of God for Life to found a Canadian Affiliate.
Although the current crisis of “Creeping Totalitarianism” no longer just “creeping” in some jurisdictions but picking up speed in threatening human lives, religious freedom, and democracy itself, has made the new Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! the new “Flagship” of the several Baptiste Family Ministries with the widest reach and appeal (anyone who wants democracy and human rights to last for their grandchildren should be interested in it), still the other, older Baptiste Family Ministries are also very important, and also support the goals of Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! For example, Donum Veritatis with its ecumenical Christian Unity in Diversity Central website (http://christian-unity-in-diversity.ourchur.ch – Helping Today’s Divided Christians to Think about Christian Unity Like the Undivided Early Church “So That the World May Believe”), the main website for which the Baptistes were invited 3 times to the Springtime of Faith Rome Summits, has an important role to play in helping today’s divided Christians to better see their common Bible as a common wonderful “Christian Family History” which continues into the post-Biblical era, helping them to better act like one loving Christian Family (bickering and all, like families do! – full structural unity is not necessary for unity in Family Love), better displaying the Christian “love for one another” by which Jesus said the world recognize His disciples, so they can have better credibility to help the Christian Family guide Western Civilization into once again embracing the abandoned Christian Pro-Life principles which are the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy, which fruits cannot last without their Christian roots. Unifying and promoting the Christian Family, using the Baptiste Family Ministries tools which Dr. Alan Screck called “a gift to the ‘Internet Generation’, ” saves precious human souls, and as a “side effect” promotes and secures the human rights and democratic freedoms which only ever came to exist because of the Christian “Pro-Life” principles.
