Now this is a question that arouses controversy so this is why I’m going to clarify. I have comprehended the meaning of baptism and personally know that it is part of the initiation into the mysteries. My question is does a person have a choice on wether they see fit for themselves to be baptized or not? Personally I think people should have a choice on what path they wish to follow. I see so many who’s families are for example Christian (or any other religion) and from birth without ever really consulting with them if they want to follow let’s say the Christian faith (or any other religion) are put through a ritual and enlisted in an institution as Christian for example which they have no prior knowledge on what they’re getting into. So my question is if One does not want to be baptized and no longer belong to a religion what does one have to do?

Baptism in the exoteric traditions is just symbolic of the real baptism that occurs in the esoteric traditions. Therefore, the symbolic baptism is only that: a symbol.

Our spiritual development has nothing to do with what religion we do or do not belong to. God does not evaluate us based on what group we follow of believe in.

We are evaluated based on the state of our consciousness.

So, if you do not want to belong to a religion, simply walk away.

The thing is that I found these quotes about baptism on the internet, it talks about a seal on the soul. I mean are they doing some sort of magic spell on you or is it just rubbish put out by the church?

"Incorporated into Christ by Baptism, the person baptized is configured to Christ. Baptism seals the Christian with the indelible spiritual mark (character) of his belonging to Christ. No sin can erase this mark, even if sin prevents Baptism from bearing the fruits of salvation. [Cf. Rom 8:29; Council of Trent (1547): DS 1609-1619] Given once for all, Baptism cannot be repeated." (C.C.C. # 1272)

"Baptism imprints on the soul an indelible spiritual sign, the character, which consecrates the baptized person for Christian worship. Because of the character Baptism cannot be repeated (cf. DS 1609 and DS 1624). (C.C.C. # 1280)

"Every unbaptised person, and only such a person, can be baptised." (Code of Canon Law # 864)

That depends upon many specifics. Is the priest a black magician or a white magician? This determines whether the baptism ritual is positive or negative. Have you studied these books?

Alexis, I was a new born child back then, how am I suppose to know if he was a black or white magician. What I do know is that it was a church in Cuba called "La Milagrosa" in Spanish. Or "the miracle" in English. It was a catholic church. Can you further explain the details involved in the baptism of a black magician and if so how to remove the spell (in case there was one). And can you also explain the ritual of a white magician (in the scenario that it would of been the case). I really appreciate your advice and help on this, I am currently starting to read the first book. I love samael's writings.

The way to remove the burdens placed on the soul is by walking the path. With each step of initiation, we remove ties to the lower realms. Study those books, you will understand.
