Arminian Audio – Seven Part Series by Bruxy Cavey

Bruxy Cavey – a pastor at at church called “The Meeting House”, has recently done an excellent seven part series contrasting Calvinism and Arminianism. It is well worth listening to.

You can find the series HERE, go to the one called “Chosen and Choosing” (October 11, 2011). It is available in either audio or video.

Cavey is Anabaptist, and he provides a unique perspective. He is a very rapid speaker, so you have to pay attention or you’ll miss something. :) He is a former Calvinist, and articulates Calvinism very well (without making caricatures of it). He spends a lot of time addressing questions that Calvinists ask non-Calvinists (like the sovereignty of God, whether or not faith is a “work”, etc). He is irenic, and stresses the importance of Christian unity – that neither Calvinism or Arminianism is the gospel. In the series he goes over the 5 points of TULIP. He addresses most of the main scripture texts that both C’s and A’s appeal to. He also has a question and answer time in each session. And he even gets a marriage proposal. :)

One minor issue to be aware of is that in the first session he seems to conflate Arminianism with semi-Pelagianism, however, this is corrected in the second session, and he accurately describes Arminianism from that point forward.

The Meeting House describes itself as “a church for people who are not into church”. It is Anabaptist in perspective, and is based near Toronto, Canada.
