You Don't Believe What?

You say you don't believe in the Great Flood of Noah's Day? Neither did they.

26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered
into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Luke 17:26, 27

What could they have done? Repentance would have been start.

What were the sins that brought the fires of wrath on Sodom? [the whole world the next time]: Jude: 7 Even 
as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and 
going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 ¶ Likewise 
also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

Or in the days of Noah: 14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, 
the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, 15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that 
are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard 
speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. 16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking 
after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration 
because of advantage.

Or as Peter puts it: 2Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and 
delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in 
the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making 
them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
7 ¶ And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to 
day with their unlawful deeds;)
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of 
judgment to be punished:
10 ¶ But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. 
Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before 
the Lord.

But, of course, this is all irrelevant if we have our own religious opinions. Isn't it?
