Coxism  Jul 16, 2007
My wife handed me a pamphlet she found. The little 20-page pamphlet was called "Why I left Scofieldism" by William E. Cox.

Scofieldism? I didn't know Scofield was an "ism". I immediately started reading the little pamphlet.

Mr. Cox complains that after growing up with the Scoffield Reference Bible, he started to confuse Scoffield's notes with actual scripture. This is regrettable. But he projects his problem onto everyone, implying we all would eventually do this, and then concludes the notes are therefore dangerous. Now I've had a Scoffield Reference Bible for 20 years, and I always considered Scoffield's notes as, well,... notes.

Mr. Cox says he "grudgingly" broke from so-called Scofieldism, because Scofield's reference notes had been so much help in preparing Sunday School lessons. All he needed to do was read Scofield's notes on a passage and the lesson was done. Did he not have a concordance, a Greek dictionary, or other commentaries? It seems like Mr. Cox's plunge into so-called Scofieldism is the fault of Mr. Cox himself. He created a problem and then complains he had it.

After Mr. Cox created his obsession with "Scofieldism", he then describes his break from it as a 3 step process, similar to a person breaking from alcohol or a cult. He blames Scofield and his "followers" for bringing this problem to him. Mr. Cox in his own mind must denounce something or someone other than himself for his obsessive behavior.

Next Mr. Cox declares that Scofield's notes go against "historic Christian teaching". Why does he not condemn Luther or Calvin? They surely showed historic Christian teaching was wrong in a number of areas.. They brought new light, revival, and understanding for many believers. Do we stop at Calvin and declare no more bible study is needed? Did not the Presbyterian Church update there own Westminster Confession of Faith a few times since the days of Calvin?

After blaming Scofield and his "disciples" for his own problem, Mr. Cox begins to present the "subtle danger" that comes from reading the Scofield notes. He creates a few straw men that can be beaten up. He finds notes in the Scofield bible that many of us today do not agree with and he beats them up. He concludes that Scofield is a heretic and is dangerous.

I must say that many of Scofield's notes are wrong in my opinion and in the opinions of many other sober, clear-thinking bible students. Yet we appreciate the effort Mr. Scofield made in his work.

Mr. Cox in the end calls Scofield a heretic, and implies that others who teach "Scofieldism" are the same. This is because Scofield teaches dispensationalism, presents Paul's apostleship as distinctive and apart from the other 12 apostles, and he explains differences between God's program for the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel and God's program for the Body of Christ. Mr. Cox needs to understand that he is not calling a bunch of crazy people heretics. He is calling a bunch of clear-thinking, sane bible students, who understand they are saved by the blood of Christ, heretics. In my 20 years of bible study I have never heard one dispensationalist call another believer a heretic.

Since Mr. Cox is now part of the Presbyterian Church, they should take notice. He may one day become obsessive, challenge their teaching, break from them, and then blame them for his own behavior in a little booklet.
A passionate and useful booklet  Sep 2, 2003
This small booklet (just 20 pages) is a passionate plea from a man who was raised in Scofieldism, yet later came to take great issue with its teaching. Cox makes a strong case from Scripture against Scofieldism and implores those in the movement to return to Biblical teaching. Even though today's dispensationalism has largely tried to distance itself from Scofieldism, the central tenets Cox refutes are still widely asserted. Thus this pamphlet is useful today both to inform those outside of Scofieldism/dispensationalism of the dangers of its teaching and to appeal to those within the movement to forsake it.
