A year ago I made the bold decision to attend a new church with my boys. Progressively my siblings began to join me. It's great but it's something my husband talks negatively about. That now we made a family thing. Nothing bad in my eyes. Regardless of their attendance I will still pursue a relationship with God. Now I want to take my adult baptism classes against his will. He refuses to stay with the kids even though he had nothing to do, he questions my beliefs, tries to confine my worship to my home. my sister met a guy there and now he wants me to find a new church which I refused. why can't he just let me be?
Husband makes fun of my religious pursuit?

I'm a Christian but some non-Christians think religion is a big scam like palm-reading or whatever, he will have trouble with it I think I'm sorry.2
Probably because he thinks being subservient to the church is a bad influence for you and his children.1
Maybe u should do massive research on ur religion. Find the core of what u are beliv0
I know this isn't what you want to hear, but his behavior sounds like a deal-breaker to me. Aren't spouses to be supportive, or at least tolerant? What kind of relationship is that?1

Im sorry to hear that you are going through such a rough time, but good for you for sticking to it. It's not an easy thing to do. I don't know if you've ever watched Duck Dynasty, but there family are Christians, and Miss Kay had the same issues with her Husband Phil. But she persisted in her faith, and took their children to church, and he eventually saw God in a new light. I'm not saying that your husband will start believing, because some people don't. But I've copied and pasted the video of their testimonial here, and I really hope it helps you. There is some other stuff on this site worth checking out too!
Love is about allowing each other to pursue their goals or dreams, encoraging them as well as supporting them. It's his way of controlling you. Maybe he is scared you will be brainwashed into leaving him, or even leave him for a fellow believer. I have no idea why he wouldn't want you to serve God if that is what you want to do.
Maybe you could use this experience as an opportunity to rely on God to guide you through prayer. I am not religious , but i believe in God. I admire anyone who pursues a life of God and chooses to live by his standards. It is his will that you serve him, so i am sure he will guide you in the right direction , and open the way some how to serve him , regardless of your husband opposing to it.1
