It’s better to marry than to burn with passion.1 That’s what The Bible says. It also says not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers.2 So it appears to be a very foolish thing that I have done, which is that I’ve become passionate for a self-described “wannabe Christian.”3 I explained to her that if she sincerely “wanted” to believe, it would have already happened4 — I’ll help you understand The Bible; ask me anything.

2 Corinthians 6:
14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.”
“Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you.”
18 “I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty.”
It’s fair to say that I too was a wannabe Christian when I first started taking The Bible seriously, although for me it was a weird mixture of believing The Bible is true while also thinking I wasn’t saved yet. It’s possible I was in fact saved the whole time. ↩
7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! 12 Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
