Baptism In Blood

[table id=4 \]

Baptism In Blood

Every child born to members of our Temple should be dedicated to the Devil in a Baptism Rite shortly after its birth. The Baptism Rite binds the child to the Devil’s service and brands it as a member of our Satanic race. It also sends a powerful message to the parents that this child is a gift from the Devil, who must be raised in the Temple to become a disciple of Satan.

Preparation

To conduct the baptism, the child is brought by its parents to a Black Lodge, House or coven gathering, where a Temple priest is present along with other People of the Pact. Optionally, two adults may accompany the parents to be ordained as “devilparents”: two sponsors who shall take a special interest in the child’s development and will take care of it if the parents should be unable to do so.

In the temple space, place a bowl of blood on the altar – goat’s blood is preferred, but other types may be used. A tattoo gun with black ink and other accessories should be on or below the altar, along with a black child’s garment, ideally provided by the parents.

Reception of the Child

The Priest calls the parents and devilparents toward the altar, where they stand holding the child to be baptized.

Celebrant: What name do you give your child?

Parents: N.

Celebrant: What do you ask of Satan’s Temple for N.?

Parents: Baptism

Celebrant: You have asked to have N. baptized. In doing so you are accepting the responsibility of training him/her in the practice of our religion. It will be your duty to bring him/her up to serve the Devil and support our fellow Templars. Do you understand?

Parents: We do.

Celebrant (asking the devilparents): Are you ready to help these parents in their duty as Satanic mother and father?

Devilparents: We are.

Celebrant: N., the Satanic community welcomes you with great joy. In its name I claim you for the Devil by the sign of His trident. I now trace the trident on your forehead, and invite your parents (and devilparents) to do the same.

The Celebrant makes the sign of the inverted trident on the child’s forehead then invites parents to do the same.

Invocation of Demons

Next the Celebrant invokes four infernal Demon-Lords:

Celebrant: Demon Abbadon, General of Hell.
All: Empower us.

Celebrant: Demon Asmodeus, Lord of Lust.
All: Empower us.

Celebrant: Demon Mammon, Prince of Greed.
All: Empower us.

Celebrant: Demon Andras, Master of Strife.
All: Empower us.

Celebrant: All unholy men and demons.
All: Pray for us.

The names of other demons may be added, such as the patrons of the child to be baptized, and of the temple or locality.

Prayer of Inorcism

The litany continues with a Satanic inorcism:

Almighty and eternal Satan,
who shall send your chosen Son into the world
to cast out the power of Yahweh, false god of the Jews,
to rescue man from the kingdom of light,
and bring him into the splendor of your kingdom of darkness.
We pray for this child:
set him (her) free to commit all sins,
make him (her) a temple of your glory,
and send your evil spirit to dwell with him (her).
We ask this and hail thy name.

All: Ave!

Profession of Faith

Celebrant: Do you reject Yahweh?
Parents: I do.

Celebrant: And all his works?
Parents: I do.

Celebrant: And all his empty promises?
Parents: I do.

Celebrant: Do you believe in Satan, the Father almighty,
Lord of Hell and Earth?
Parents: I do.

Celebrant:

Do you believe in the Antichrist,
His chosen Son, our king,
who shall be born of a woman,

who shall conquer the world,

establish the line of kings

that reigns forever in the name of our Lord?

Parents: I do.

Celebrant:
Do you believe in the Unholy Spirit,
the holy Temple of Satan,
the dominion of demons,
the commitment of sins,
the reincarnation of the body,
and the infernal life everlasting?

Parents: I do.

Celebrant:
This is our faith.
This is the faith of the Temple.
We are proud to profess it, in Satan’s name.

All: Ave.

Baptism & Branding

Now the Celebrant takes the child from the parents, lays it on the altar and conducts the baptism.

Celebrant:

I baptize you in the name of Satan

(Celebrant dips fingers in bowl and sprinkles blood on the child)

the Antichrist,

(Celebrant sprinkles blood on the child a second time)

and the Unholy Spirit.

(Celebrant sprinkles blood on the child a third time, then draws an inverted trident on the child’s forehead in blood with his finger)

The Lord of this world, Father of the Antichrist has freed you to sin, given you a new birth by blood and the Unholy Spirit, and welcomed you into his Satanic race. He now brands you with the mark of the Trident. As Cain was given a mark of shame; as the Antichrist shall be given the Mark of the Beast; so shall you be marked, to set you apart as one of the chosen people of Satan, who shall serve Him and be rewarded with all the pleasures and powers of this world.

All: Ave.

The celebrant now takes out the tattoo equipment and quickly tattoos a small trident symbol on the child’s left shin. If the child cries out, the celebrant hails Satan and reassures the audience that the pain is the price of the Devil’s mark. When it is done, the celebrant announces:

N., you are a new creation. You are a child of the Devil, baptized in blood and given the mark of our diabolical race. Now I clothe you in this black garment, as all children of the Devil are clothed.

The celebrant wraps the child in the black garment, then invites the parents and devilparents back to the altar.

Come receive your child, parents and devilparents. May you raise him to be a strong man of our race and a mighty warrior for Satan.

The Celebrant hands the child back to the parents, who stand holding it in front of the altar facing the congregation. He announces: “Come forth, all People of the Pact, and welcome this child into our tribe.”

Concluding Liturgy

The congregants file toward the altar to greet the child and its parents, and as they do each makes the sign of the inverted trident across his chest. Then the celebrant addresses them all, saying “Children of Satan, let us pray.” The congregation says in unison:

Our Father, who wert in heaven,
Unhallowed be thy name;
thy Empire come,
thy will be done on Earth as it is in Hell.
Give us this day our daily boons;
and reward us our trespasses
as we reward those who trespass for thee;
and lead us not from temptation,
but deliver us to evil.

The baptism service concludes with the congregation singing a hymn to Satan such as this:

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in Satan my Master
for he has looked with favor on his servant.

From this day all generations will call me cursed:
for the Devil has done great things for me,
and unholy is his Name.

He has no mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scattered the weak in their failure.

He has cast down the meek from their thrones,
and has lifted up the worthy.

He has filled the evil with power,
and the good he has sent away empty.

He has come to the help of his Temple’s people
for he has remembered his promise of power,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Cain and his children for ever.

Glory to the Devil, and to the Son,
and to the Unholy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now
and will be forever. Ave.

The congregation may be dismissed at this point, or they may be invited to partake in a general orgy as is the custom of our Temple, at the members’ discretion.
