Did you know that some Christian denominations like The Catholics and Lutherans, who believe in creation by God , have changed their belief that the flood of Noah was an actual event that occurred.

For proof, please go to the Catholic Encyclopedia of 1908 , volume 4 , page 702, under the heading Deluge which says that they affirm belief in a world wide flood that was a real event. They mentioned that their Church Fathers, Christian Bible writers like Peter and Jesus, and the history of their Church all give testimony that the flood was a real event in Noah's Day.

Then they abruptly changed their tune. Look at the New Catholic Encyclopedia, of 1967 , volume 2 page 509, under the heading of Bible, and also pages 741 -743 under the heading of Deluge (I think volume 2 also).
Here they say the reverse, that the flood is a myth, an allegory. They went against the Bible's position and the whole history of their Church.

The interesting thing is that this reversal by people who believe in creation ( whether they believe God directly created , or God started the evolutionary process) was prophesied to come about in the last days of this wicked system of things, when true faith in the Bible would be under attack.
