Calvin’s Main Point in the Selection I Read From the Institutes of the Christian Religion

John Calvin(1509-1564), was an important figure during the Protestant Reformation. Calvin’s teachings were similar to Luther’s, but he went more beyond than Luther had. Calvin was well written, and his most famous work is his book: Institutes of the Christian Religion. In this book, Calvin emphasized many points, but his main point(at least from the selection I read), is predestination.

Predestination is the doctrine in which God has eternally chosen those he wants to save. Which in short means that individuals who have been predestined for hell will not have a chance or hope to ever receive salvation. Individuals who are predestined to go to heaven are forced to take this salvation. 

Predestination is the main point I noticed from the selection I read from the Institutes of the Christian Religion, by John Calvin.
