There are some aspects of Calvinism that make little to no sense to me and I need your help. On Unconditional Election (Predestination), the idea that God has predetermined the saved guys Look at this verse. 1 Peter 5:8 (KJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour Why should the predestined care for the devil, he is totally harmless against them. And why would God unleash the devil on the un-predestined or the lost, isn't it sort of redundant deceiving the already eternally deceived? The other question is on knowledge of predestination. Can a living man know that he is predestined or not? And if NO, would lack of that information be equal to no assurance of salvation?
