In fact, many might argue that some denominations are not Christianity at all. It was adopted by the Church of Scotland in 1648 and has become the basic creed of Presbyterian groups in Britain and throughout the world.

The former view, sometimes called "high Calvinism", argues that the Fall occurred partly to facilitate God's purpose to choose some individuals for salvation and some for damnation. I’m fairly familiar with the modern forms of Calvinism that fall on the more austere and cerebral end of the spectrum. S. voter apathy.) If a consumer is sufficiently disgusted with the two leading brands of some product, that consumer can often simply avoid or postpone buying either. Therefore let him draw forth this sword of God against all malefactors, seditious persons, thieves, murderers, oppressors, blasphemers, perjured persons, and all those whom God has commanded him to punish or even to execute.
