CALVINISM II.

Foreknowledge
Election
Predestination

 

In this second course in the Calvinism series you will study the 3 main biblical precepts most closely associated with Calvinism.  (1 credit)

"The Bible was written for the common man. The Doctrines of Foreknowledge, Election, and Predestination are no more complex and difficult to understand than the other precious doctrines of the Bible. The devil has worked harder to distort and confuse in these areas because he knows that if they are clearly understood they will produce the zeal, separation from the world, and dedication that was demonstrated by the first generation of believers."  (Dr. James Wilkins)
