Lioness Arising Mom #3: Melanie Baldwin

IN LOVING MEMORY OF….MELANIE BALDWIN, who went to be with Jesus 3 years after this was originally posted. We love and miss you Melanie!

I’d like to introduce Lioness Arising Mother #3: Melanie Baldwin

Melanie is married to her husband Tim and they have one child, Luke. Luke was born healthy in 2001. He sat up, rolled over, crawled, walked, and said his first word on time. However, he had a very slow and gradual regression until age five. Speech never increased beyond a word or two here and there. His delays didn’t seem like a big deal until he started headbanging at age five, after three straight rounds of antibiotics. Shortly before his sixth birthday they started treating him with diet and supplements, and found that helped improve his head-banging.  Thus began their journey with biomedical treatments. Not long after that the Lord sent them a compassionate doctor who was able to gently help them understand what vaccines can do to children who are high risk–children like Luke who have parents with histories of allergies, autoimmune disorders, etc.

As Melanie says:

“Once my eyes were opened, it became very obvious what happened to Luke. You can see it in all of his photo albums…with each set of photos he is a little less “with us”. I will never stop trying to inform the world about what happened to my son, in the hopes that it will keep more children from having it happen to them. I pray that more people’s eyes are opened before it’s too late.”


Recently Melanie wrote a beautiful post. I want to share:

Vaccines, Autism, and the Evil One: A Call to God’s People

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

Every day on Facebook I see another tragic story: a child who has been injured, a child who has wandered off and gotten lost, or a child who has died after having a vaccine. The most recent ones are a seven-year-old girl who got sick the day after receiving a flu shot, and subsequently passed away; and a group of a dozen or so girls in New York who have suddenly come down with Tourette’s-like symptoms, including tics, twitches, and seizures. This particular story from New York is being covered up in such a way that even many of the girls’ parents have not been told what happened to their daughters.

Many people report that their children regressed into autism immediately following a set of their childhood vaccines, yet those reports are brushed off. Thousands of young girls have reported being injured from the HPV/Gardisil vaccine. A handful have even died. Yet the CDC, FDA, etc, does nothing…no recall on this vaccine that is so blatenly obviously a danger to our children, and instead, they have now approved this supposed cervical cancer vaccine for boys! What in the world is going on? Why is our medical establishment so determined to protect these vaccines?

The list of parents who insist that their children regressed into autism after vaccines is likely somewhere in the thousands. Yet these parents are brushed off, mocked and ridiculed for actually believing what they saw with their own two eyes.
We are told we can’t believe the parents. Apparently having a child with autism makes you stupid and therefore what you saw is wrong. Poor, hysterical parents.

No, instead we are told to look at and trust in “science”.

I have two big problems with this argument:

1. The “science”, the “studies” that people like to refer to, stating vaccines are “safe”- well, they just do not exist. They haven’t been done. Sure, we have a few studies on individual vaccines…completed by the very people who have everything to gain by these vaccines–PROFIT. But we have no unbiased studies. No study to prove that giving vaccine after vaccine – several at a time, most of them being jabbed in the first few precious years of life – is not dangerous and sometimes tragic for some children. There is no study proving that giving a newborn their first vaccine when they are only a few hours old is safe. The studies have NOT been done. They do not exist. Now, before you say, “I had vaccines when I was a child, and I turned out fine”, well, do some research on the amount of vaccines that you were given as a baby, and the amount that is given now. The difference is staggering.
2. My second problem with trusting in “science” is this: As a Christian, modern science has basically declared war on faith in God. Many of these same scientists that we are told we should trust would also like to convince you that you are a product of evolution, not creation. Many also tell you that life begins at birth, not conception, and that you aren’t aborting a baby, you are aborting “fetal tissue”. The title of “scientist” today seems to have become more elevated than the level that we put God on.Many of these scientists spend a lot of time trying to prove that God does not even exist. Yet many Christians continue to believe that they must trust the “science”.

Meanwhile, the health of our children continues to decline rapidly. (Our adults too, but that is a topic for another time.) Autism, ADD, ADHD, sensory issues, Tourette’s Syndrome, life-threatening food allergies, bipolar disorder–all unheard of or rare in children just a couple of decades ago–all are rapidly increasing in our children today. Our children are receiving these labels and no one seems to be asking why. The likelihood is that a number of causes are behind this. In addition to vaccines, our kids are exposed to a multitude of toxins on a daily basis. Junk/fast/processed foods have ingredient lists that can’t even be pronounced. Many toxins are being concealed under the label “artificial flavoring”. Pesticides are everywhere. Mercury is in our teeth. Lead is in our kids’ toys. Toxins are everywhere.

But instead of going to the source of the problem, we try instead to use the medications that our scientists created for us in order to resolve our symptoms.

Do you see the crazy cycle here?

And, while I am talking about toxins, let’s discuss genetically modified foods. Scientists have decided that they can improve on the food that God gave us to eat, so they alter it in a variety of ways. What? It is the same way that scientists have decided they can improve on man’s immune systems – by vaccinating us to death, or at least to serious harm.

So, where is the church in all of this?
From what I have seen, the church is right there in the middle of it all, continuing to trust in man and “science”. Oh, trust me, I am not condemning anyone. I, too, had blinders on for a long time, I vaccinated my son up to his eyeballs, I trusted and believed the system. I get it, I really do. But after what I have seen with my son and his autism, and what I have heard from my autism warrior mom friends, and after many years of praying about it, the blinders have been removed from my eyes.

A year or so ago, I was having a discussion with a friend about what I believe about vaccines and autism. She wondered if the powers-that-be really know what they were doing. I told her yes, and she asked me, why? Why are they doing it? At the time, the only answer I had was money, which didn’t seem exactly right, but it was all I had.
I have another answer now.

Yes, I do believe profit has much to do with it for a number of people involved. After all, “the love of money is the root of all evil” (I Timothy 6:10). But actually there is a bigger picture here, a reason far more sinister than most people can even imagine.

Let’s revisit Ephesians 6:12: For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

As the mom of a child with autism, I am easily angered when I read some of the quotes about how “safe” vaccines are by the industy’s most famous pro-vax-ers. I confess even that there have been times that I wanted serious hurt to befall some of these people.
But I see the bigger picture now.

These people – scientists, doctors, drug/vaccine manufacturers – are merely pawns. They are being used – played by their sinister sick evil wanna-be-god Satan, and probably don’t even know it. Satan is using these guys to accomplish his work – destroying God’s people. He wants to make you sick, very sick, and die. He wants to make you angry and curse God. That’s what he is all about. He is doing it very much the same way that he first manipulated Eve to eat the forbidden apple – by convincing her that you can be a better person than God created you to be. He manipulates us with fearmongering and scare tactics – “You don’t want your child to get measels, do you?” – and he tricks us into altering our immune systems with vaccines by telling you that you will be “healthier” than God made you to be in the first place. He is doing the same thing by altering our food supply – convincing you that man can improve on what God made, making better food than God ever could.

Unfortunately, most people cannot see it! Satan is clever, doing his evil in secret, disguising it as “good”…just as he did in the garden of Eden.

Please, I am begging my Christian brothers and sisters here, please take what I am saying to you before the Lord and ask Him if it is true. Go to Him without fear, with your mind open, and trust Him that if what I am saying is true, you don’t have to be afraid. God will take care of you. Ask God to remove any blinders that you may have on, and to show you TRUTH. Look, it took me YEARS to get my blinders fully removed. It was a process. I know God knew I couldn’t handle this truth in one big swoop. But I also know that He has called me to this…to take His light and shine it on the evil one, and expose what he is doing. And that is what I am doing now. Please prayerful consider this. Please.

If you are reading this and you are not a Christian, I am begging you also to consider what I have said here. I assure you I am not crazy, Satan DOES exist, he IS real and he DOES want to hurt you. It is easy and natural to think people like Paul Offit and the like are causing all of this, purely for money. But consider in your heart how this sort of sinister plan to be created and carried out by man alone. How has this been kept a secret for so long? Doesn’t it seem like there is something else at work here, for the truth to be denied and covered up on such a large scale? I submit to you today that this entire scenario is much bigger and darker than most of us ever realized. If you want to talk to me about this further, feel free to send me a private message. I would love to talk to you about God and His Son, Jesus…who will, one day (and I believe it is very soon) put an end to all of this mess and call His children home, and then he will destroy the evil one.

Yes, I believe Jesus is returning, very very soon.

I testify to you today, January 21, 2012, that what I have just written is the truth that God has revealed to me after many many hours of seeking answers in prayer. But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. (James 1:5) I pray that you will examine this for yourselves and that your eyes will be opened.

In Him,

  1. Melanie, has hit it dead on. She is exactly right and on point. A wonderful viewpoint from a Christian perspective. I’ve never seen it this way and it opens my eyes even more to the truth about vaccines and why I, as a Christian mother, do not vaccinate my children.


  2. Very well written. Thank you, as I too only had one answer- for the money. This has given me a new perspective and focus.


  3. God Bless You for sharing your testimony with others and for spreading the Truth! I have NEVER thought of things this way…For a while I was neither pro, nor against vaccinations. I have 2 toddler girls with another on the way in Feb. I have vaccinated both kids so far with everything the Dr. has recommended 😦 BUT-I always had a nagging feeling of “should I be doing this? Is this the best thing for my kids?” I have, several times, questioned my pediatrician, the nurses, family members about any potential dangers of vaccines, everytime getting the same type of answer: “of course they are safe, it is more dangerous NOT to vaccinate your kids…” These are all people I trust-but what I have learned is that, just like in other situations, I need to trust my gut and trust the Lord. I know my youngest will be due for another round of shots in Jan. and I have been praying to God to lead me on the correct path of what to do…I found this website yesterday and have been reading testimonies like yours and I am feeling more of a calm than I have for a while. Of course, I still have alot of praying & researching to do, but I really feel that knowing what I have learned over the past few years-specifically the past few months-I don’t think I can continue vaccinating my children in good faith. Again, thank you so much for sharing your story. I will pray for you & your family as you continue to recover. God Bless!!


  4. God has revealed the exact same thing to me. I truly believe that some sort of vaccine will be the mark of the beast. We are slowly having our freedoms to vaccinate or not taken away. Oregon is changing the religious exemption toa non-medical exemption. Once there is no real religious exemption we will have to make a choice….there will be some created epidemic and we will all be required to be vaccinated with some vaccine that leaves a mark like the small pox one did. At least this is what I’ve been getting strong thoughts about. The groundwork is being laid, people are right now being pawned against each other. And the vaccine part is just part of the groundwork. Common core, the shady presidency, rights being stepped on, weird stuff going on that points to God’s word.
