Will Gay Marriage Pit Church Against Church?

The trouble they see is not just an America where general support for gay marriage will have driven a wedge between churches and the world, but between churches themselves.

He's not. I'm not. The only one arguing with the Bible is you. After all, there is not LEGITIMATE translation of any verse that condemns homosexuality. Quite the contrary, the Bible CELEBRATES the marriage of David and Johnathan.
Nah. I don't argue with God. That's YOUR problem, Biblical illiteracy.

It means what it says, FEAR. The NT confirms.

Hebrews 10:31 (NKJV)
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Is Christian morality based on fear?

Some people characterize Christian morality as primitive because they view it as relying on threats of punishment in hell and promises of reward in heaven. It is true that the Bible teaches there is an afterlife with rewards and punishments for earthly conduct.1 But it also teaches that morality is based on love, not fear. God instructed the Israelites to love foreigners because they were once foreigners themselves and ought to empathize with them.2 (Contrary to popular belief, the command to love one's neighbor as oneself is not unique to the New Testament, but first appears in the Old Testament in Leviticus 19:18.)

That the basis of morality is love, not fear, is most clearly and fully expressed in the book of 1 John:

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.(1 Jn 4:7-11)

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.(1 Jn 4:16b-18, emphasis added)

This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world.(1 Jn 5:2-4a)

Are you referring to the God of the Bible Who drowned all but 8 to make an example of them?
