Thomas Jefferson meant that the Calvinism he assumed to be Christianity was a perverted and twisted belief system. In that respect, he was right: Calvinism takes Jesus's message of love for all people, and perverts it into an exclusivist message of self-righteousness on one hand, and condemnational, arrogant judgment on the other hand.
