Fluids for Christ was officially created in June 2000 by Winston Katt, a retired
salesman from Michigan. "My whole life has been about making the world a better
place," Katt says. "Back in the 60s when I was selling plastic products, I
thought 'Well, the world has come about as far as it can.' We had plastic for car parts
and watches and gloves -- it was amazing! And then the microwave oven came along and I
realized that there was just no end to God's glory."
Katt began pondering how he could contribute, but was held back by
negative thoughts. "Well, by that time, I figured this land of ours didn't really
need any new ideas. And I sure wasn't one to come up with new inventions! Little did I
know what God had in store for me."
Christian Blood Banking
In the early 80s, Katt's younger brother, Ray, was in a horrific motorcycle accident.
"He was always a wild sort. Kind of like Marlon Brando in that biker movie? Looked
just like him except for the nose and eyes, and he didn't quite have the mouth. But he
always wore this leather jacket." As Ray teetered near death, doctors told Katt, his
wife Freida (now deceased), and Ray's roommate Michael that only a blood transfusion would
save the dying man. Katt rolled up his sleeve and through the grace of God turned out to
be a perfect match!
"After Ray got that transfusion," Katt remembers, "he was a changed
man. He used to party all the time with his buddies. They'd go to these bars and drink
with each other and stay out all night. Then they'd have sleep-overs like little girls.
They were always too busy with these parties to date women. Him and Michael were always
going out to those bars. But after the accident, he stopped going. He gradually realized
that Michael was a bad influence. To get away, he moved in with a close friend,
Julian, who was the pastor of a non-denominational church."
Ray gradually began attending church services. Continuing his job as a florist,
he went to Divinity School at night. Working through Winston's transfused blood,
God's spirit turned Ray's life around!
Proud of his little brother's achievements and curious about their cause, Katt spent
the next two decades researching genetics, hematology, fluid dynamics, psychology,
geometry, and religion. "I had to borrow from many disciplines because there
was very little medical literature about the transferative properties of individual donor
characteristics. In other words, could certain qualities of the blood donor be
passed on to the recipient? In my brother's case, the answer was a very emphatic Yes."
Unfortunately, Ray died in the early 1990s after suffering a prolonged illness. Ray's death
was not in vain. Katt's discoveries led to the founding of Fluids for Christ, almost
one year ago. While not certified to collect, utilize, test, transfer, transfuse, sample,
deliver, sell, purchase, offer, maintain, store, or possess Christian fluids, Fluids for
Christ will educate the Christian community about the importance of Christian fluid
Christian Seed and Receptacles of Life
What's more sacred than blood? Only two things: the
seeds and receptacles of life. Many Christian couples today are led by God to conceive
through alternate means. The wonders of God's modern technology have no end!
Fluids for Christ is dedicated to educating the public
about the dangers of selecting seeds or receptacles from a donor bank without first
knowing the donor's religious convictions. Because seed and receptacle banks have no
plans to screen donations for religious characteristics, as they sometimes do for
genetic ones, Fluids for Christ encourages communities to start their own seed and
Just as animal breeders select stock for future
generations, we must ensure that our children and their children know the grace of God
and have it flowing through them.
Winston Katt knows he's elderly, but he is by no means old! His current
topics of research include:
** the possibility of Christian tissue and organ donation (currently
prevented by federal, state, and local regulations);
** methods of preventing contamination of mass-produced food supplies
by UnChristian vectors;
** methods of raising Christian livestock (cattle, pork, poultry) for
human consumption; and
** several other proprietary (i.e., secret!) topics of research.
A Message from Winston Katt
"I think we need to take our responsibility as Christians very
seriously," Winston cautions. "The temptation may exist for some fringe
groups to forcibly transfuse Christian fluids into UnChristians. This would not be right.
If it is God's will, however, we may have remarkable opportunities to instill the
love of God into those who would not encounter it otherwise. We must also do additional
research and monitoring to ensure that physical characteristics aren't transferred along
with more invisible ones. The last thing we need is for every Christian in the world to
