I believe that Calvinism is supported by the Scriptures. We don't know how God chooses people, but the Scripture is clear that He does choose people to be saved. Read the following passages: Ephesians 1:1-14, Romans 8:29-30, Romans 9:14-25. However, other verses seem to support the Armenian position: 1 Timothy 2:3-4, 2 Peter 3:9. I suspect that the Calvinists are right, although it's possible that the truth is somewhere in the middle. I'm not sure. I recommend the book "Chosen By God" by R.C. Sproul, which presents the Calvinist position.
