Calvinism

Calvinism, which is also called the Reform Tradition, is one of the major and oldest branches of Protestantism and formed primarily in opposition to both the Catholic Church and the Rise of Lutheranism, composing many different Protestant sects. Calvinism primarily stems from the teachings of John Calvin. One of the distinctive teachings of Calvinism is the concept of Predestination, meaning that God has already chosen those who will go to Heaven or Hell and that there is no free will for a person to change their fate through works.
