Mel, I'm sorry for the late reply. I just saw your question.

You asked if Calvinism and predestination are forms of apostasy. The short answer is no. Some doctrines are essential, like belief in the deity of Christ, the Trinity, salvation by grace through faith, etc. Other doctrines -- such as how God's foreknowledge and man's freewill fit together -- are non-essential. This means that true believers in Christ can disagree on these issues. That doesn't mean they're not important; it just means that you can hold to different positions and still be saved. The question is, are we as believers honestly evaluating all the Scripture we have to come to our conclusions.

By the way, we still have a link to the Apologetics Index (which I think you were referring to) in the Resources section.

Hope this helps!
