Main Ideas and Reforms

Calvin supported predestination which is the divine right that you will go to heaven or hell decided by God already no matter what you did. Calvin got inspired by Augustine ideas which he adapted for him. He like Zwingli also supported theocracy so Geneva, Switzerland which he made into a very strict city. He believed that people were sinful by nature and they needed strict laws to control them.

Why We Need It

We need to reform the church for lots of reasons since the Catholic Church was very corrupt. They sold indulgences to people so get faster to heaven but it was a scam and the church kept the money for themselves.
