These are just specific verses, I encourage you to read the chapters as well if you really want to study Calvinism.

Some Calvinists only believe in 3 points, I forgot which ones they leave out, but I don’t see how you can pick and choose from the points. If man is totally depraved, then he can’t choose God. If he can’t choose God, he needs to be chosen by God. If some are chosen by God then that means others aren’t chosen by God. If man was not chosen then God’s irresistible grace was not extended to him. If a man falls out of grace then grace was never extended to him. If it were possible to fall out of grace then God’s will is resistible and Christ died in vain. If God’s will isn’t irresistible then He isn’t God.
