5 “By predestination we mean the eternal decree of God, by which he determined with himself whatever he wished to happen with regard to every man. All are not created on equal terms, but some are preordained to eternal life, others to eternal damnation; and, accordingly, as each has been created for one or other of these ends, we say that he has been predestinated to life or to death.” (John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, vols. 1-4 “Of The Eternal Election…” p. 953, The Master Christian Library CD)
