Apparently he is assuming that all that might be wrong within this relationship lies within you, and is voluntary, and can be fixed by you deciding to just do things differently, which is unlikely. Your comments suggest that there are indeed some sort of dark secrets within your past which you hesitate to tell him about, so maybe he isn't just being nost, and maybe some discussion of the issues here would be useful - but with the aid of a skilled marriage counsellor.
Your religious views need to be respected, but it sounds as though this matter of "waiting" has become a major issue for both of you. If you keep asking him about this, you can see how annoying and distrustful this would sound to him.
It doesn't sound clear whether you will EVER feel like "opening up" to him, so you are asking him to wait indefinitely for something that might not even hapen. Sounds like you could benefit from some individual counselling, first, to sort out what appear tyo be major issues you have about aspects of your past ; and then some couples counselling to work out what can and can't work between you
