Calvinism seems to be a confusion on people who do not search the Scriptures rather than pick out proof texts: This old linke shows up on page 2 of Google and warned us of the problem.

The latest adult curriculum features James Wood on Ephesians and Predestination: while the creed of the publisher is not clear it is enough to convey the idea that God is in charge and has a plan all laid out for you.

Those God foreknew were the Jews whom God had known before: He purposed that a tiny remnant which had not bowed to Baal would be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ and gladly accept the Gentiles.
God prepurposed only that samll remnant and did not force any of them to "call back" when He invited them through the Gospel.
John 6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Until Evangelists fail, the purpose was to go into all the world and call the name of God over them by preaching the gospel. Once people had made their choice the preacher shakes the dust off in respect to people like the pharisees who rejected the PREcounsel of God by not being baptized.
John 6:45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God.
Every man therefore
that hath heard,
and hath learned of the Father,
cometh unto me.
Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized:
and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
