Is Calvinism Biblical?

Hi! I hope we have a great and friendly debate! :) The organized doctrine of Calvinism (though Calvinism is simply a nickname) is completely founded in Biblical scripture. The main pillars of Calvinism include Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement (a better term would be Particular Atonement), Irresistible Grace, and Perseverance of the Saints.

Sadly, though, there is no limit to the damage wire cages can do to dogs' health. They experience joint and limb discomfort and irregular growth from standing on the wires. Their paw pads can be badly bruised or cut from the hard metal. Because wire cages aren't comfortable, dogs remain standing for longer pe...

Memories are very important to the community. If people do not have memories, they can't use that memory to make more choices to lead their life in the way that they want it to go. It is very simple, that memory is very important....
