Why can’t my boyfriend talk to me while he is studying to be baptized?

Last updated on November 2, 2020


Hello sir,

In my boyfriend’s church, everybody is forcing him to breakup with me, so that he can concentrate in his baptism study. I’m a Hindu. I’ve already told him that I’ll become a believer soon because even I want to know about God and His magic, etc. Please help us to figure out this. He is already concentrating on his baptism work.

We just want to talk to each other every single day. Please help us.


I don’t know of any help I can offer. I can’t tell another church what to do. Besides, in the Bible, there is no requirement for a special study before baptism. A person does learn about Jesus and about our need to be saved from our sins, but once you understand your need to become a Christian — believing what you have learned, repenting of your sins, and confessing that Jesus is the Son of God — then all is needed is to be baptized. See: How to Become a Christian. There is no requirement to not talk to other people.
