God is the supreme and ultimate authority in all things. He is our creator, king, judge, and saviour. He has revealed Himself to all people in a certain way in nature and innately in our consciences and reasoning capabilities (Rom 1:18-23, 2:15), and more fully in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments (2 Tim 3:16,17, 2 Pet 1:21) , and in Jesus Christ – the second person of the Trinity who became one of us (John 14:9, Heb 1:2). So, can God – possessor of all authority who is omnipotent, cannot lie, and cannot deny Himself – be separated in any degree from what He has said? For two millennia Christians have recognized that this is impossible. Unfortunately there are many who have tried to argue otherwise. Bruxy Cavey is one.
Recently Bruxy Cavey delivered a sermon on the Anabaptist view of Scripture in which he explained that Anabaptists emphasize following Jesus over following the Bible. In this post I want to tackle one of Bruxy’s Scriptural supports for his view. Continue reading “Bruxy vs Peter: The Authority of Scripture”
A few weeks ago Bruxy Cavey spoke at Greg Boyd’s church and gave this classic Bruxy sermon in which he once again denied and preached against inerrancy, the ultimate authority of Scripture, and Penal Substitutionary Atonement. He was there to promote Greg Boyd’s newest book which attempts to make sense of the Old Testament revelation of God in a way consistent with Pacifist presuppositions.

Bruxy Cavey is a Pastor and teacher at The Meeting House, a multi-site operation with locations across Ontario, Canada. In the past few months I have listened to many hours of his sermons, other podcasts, university lectures, and You Tube videos. I had originally seen some videos of him denying inerrancy, the ultimate authority of Scripture and Penal Substitution on You Tube, and I wanted to get a good grasp on his teaching simply because he is in my area and is very popular.
I listened to his series “Inspired – How God Speaks Through Scripture” closely, knowing already that he denied the inerrancy and ultimate authority of the Scriptures. What I heard was very troubling – especially this portion of Part 3 of the series titled “The Shadow & The Substance” where Bruxy teaches on Colossians 2:16-17. What troubled me was not only his denial of the ultimate authority of the text, but the way he was willing to handle the Scriptures to affirm his position. I will address that particular part of his teaching here. Continue reading “Bruxy Rips and Twists”
Tyndale University, College and Seminary is in Toronto Ontario. This summer they are offering a course in Evangelism taught by Bruxy Cavey, Pastor of The Meeting House. I have heard Bruxy teach on evangelism before, and it makes me wonder – why would Tyndale have Bruxy teaching there? Continue reading “Why is Bruxy Cavey Teaching at Tyndale?”
In a recent message delivered at The Meeting House, Bruxy Cavey spoke about the Anabaptist view of Scripture. It seemed like it was very possibly, at least in part, a response to this recent article and some of the criticism that has been coming his way. In that message he said that Anabaptists are not “anti-Inerrancy”, they just don’t use the word “Inerrancy” to describe their view. He claimed that because of this Anabaptists may be labelled heretics. Continue reading “Is Bruxy Cavey Anti-Inerrancy?”
Bruxy Cavey, Pastor and Teacher at The Meeting House, denies the inerrancy of the Scriptures. Further than that, he teaches that certain parts of Scripture are not just mistaken, but sinful and wrong. In demonstrating this he pits certain portions of Scripture against others. To prove the errancy of the Bible Bruxy has a few examples he uses, one of which is Titus 1:12-13. Continue reading “Bruxy Cavey’s Incoherent View of Scripture”
