"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love 5He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, 6to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved,"
 (Eph. 1:3-6, NASB)


      Calvinism, also known as Reformed theology, is a system of biblical interpretation that focuses on the supreme sovereignty of God, His majesty, His holiness, etc.  It relates this to man's fallen, sinful nature.  Because of the great chasm between God and man and because of man's sinfulness, God must predestine people into salvation...or none would be saved.  Therefore, salvation is the work of God and we are the recipients of His gracious election.
     To God be the glory.
