It's a PERSON who believes in Calvinism
They believed in Predestination. In other words, God decreed, even before creating the world, who will be saved and who will be damned. But this is NOT true. It …says in the Bible that it is not God's will that anyone shall perish, but that all should have eternal life. =D Our God is a loving God. To whoever wrote the above, you are partially correct: YES, God WANTS us all to have eternal life, HOWEVER, the dispute between God and Lucifer was about just that fact, EVERYONE canNOT have eternal salvation, or Lucifer would have been happy and his fall would have never happened. Calvinists do believe in Predestination, yet, as Christians we should also because it is clearly stated in the Bible that He predestined some for His glory (Rom. 8:30-31). The biggest difference I see in Calvinism and Arminianism (which is what basic Christianity is formed from) is the belief that MOST people aren't predestined for salvation. But I also see that there are extremist Calvinist just as there are extremists in any religious belief, and these people are the ones who say that everyone is going to hell and no one is good even when saved.
An adherent of the theological doctrines of John Calvin. John Calvin wanted to break off and form his own type of Christianity called Calvinism
Calvinists believed in predisposition; they believed that God chose, before you were born, whether or not you would go to heaven or hell and there was nothing you could do in …your lifetime to change that. The reason they worked so hard in being religious was because they wanted to show others around them that they were chosen by God to go to heaven. But this is NOT true, It says in the Bible that it is not God's will that anyone shall perish, but that all should have enternal life. =D
