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?
