"We may rest assured that God would never have suffered any infants to be slain except those who were already damned and predestined for eternal death." - John Calvin Ok.... I am new to studying Calvinism, I didnt know much about it but now that I am trying to figure out my friends who are in this, I have many questions. Why did John Calvin say that quote? I mean, so calvinist believe that God created some for heaven and some for hell. In order words babies who are born which were not elect, would go to hell. Where is this in scripture? I come here because in my other sources, each time I ask someone who is a calvinist this, they change the subject or start asking me questions without answering this one. Where is the scripture which says that God made certain men to make it to heaven and others he created with the single purpose of sending them to hell without giving them a choice in the matter? I am talking about plain scriptures, not interpretations or thoughts about it. I want scripture on this one... and I seem not to get it... I love my brothers and sisters who are calvinists but I dont agree with this one... :jesus: I do not believe man can come to God by himself, I believe it is only when God calls them. (John 6:44) No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. I do believe that God is definitely calling all men up to him, and none are without excuse before the lord. Not one single atheist can say God didnt give me a chance. (John 12:32) And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. (Romans 10:13) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved Sadly, not all accept this free gift God is offering of salvation. This is just my thoughts.... what do you think, do non-elect babies go to hell according to Calvinism?
