Calvinism Defended

This definition comes from the Portable Seminary:

Calvinism- A theological system based on the teachings of John Calvin (Jean Cauvin), a sixteenth-century French Reformer, Calvin stressed the supremacy of Scripture (Sola Scriptura) in theology and practice. Five key doctrines of Calvinism outlined by the Synod of Dort (1618) form the acronym TULIP:

Total depravity of mankind (sin renders us incapable of righteousness)

Unconditional election (God's election is not conditioned on our belief)

Limited atonement (Christ's redemptive work applies only to the elect)

Irresistible grace (God's grace cannot be rejected or thwarted)

Perseverance of the saints (the elect are eternally secure)

The definition below came from Theopedia:

Calvinism is the theological system associated with the Reformer John Calvin that emphasizes the rule of God over all things as reflected in its understanding of Scripture, God, humanity, salvation, and the church. In popular vernacular, Calvinism often refers to the Five Points of Calvinistic doctrine regarding salvation, which make up the acrostic TULIP. In its broader sense, Calvinism is associated with Reformed theology.
