Roger Olson, a worshiper of Satan and a deceiver of young seminary students and as many others as he may has for some time now had his own column on Patheos, an anti-Christian site that also promotes and explains the supposed legitimacy of Satanism. In this anti-Christian piece, Roger complains about the “young Calvinists” and openly asks all others to do what they can to get the new Calvinists to essentially follow Satan’s emotional etiquette when supposedly interacting with ‘other Christians’ who hate the doctrines of grace and who do not at all compare the Word of God/Jesus Christ/Creating Speech on equal terms with anti-Christ/ speech in which lies are spoken / non-creating speech/ satan’s speech. He is of course simply one of many that seeks to defend the lie that there is no pure doctrine of Jesus Christ that can be known, no actual presence of God in us after new birth in Jesus Christ and so everyone just hopes as best he may that his own personal version of the Bible is “correct enough” and is to follow certain emotional rules in interacting with others who have ‘opinions’ they hope will save them one day without non-metaphorical new birth in Jesus Christ.
excerpt: “For those of you who do not know, I have been involved in a controversy with the American neo-Calvinists (“Young, Restless, Reformed”)—especially their leaders—for many years.
Please allow me to indulge in a bit of autobiography to help explain my frustration that led to my crusade to calm down the YRR crowd and get them to treat those of us who are non-Calvinist evangelicals fairly.
It all began…one day in (I think it was) 1985. I had begun teaching theology at evangelical Bethel College and Seminary in suburban St. Paul, Minnesota one year earlier. Very soon after joining that faculty I began to hear from both colleagues and students conflicting opinions about two former Bethel professors: John Piper and Wayne Grudem. Both had left Bethel and gone to teach at other positions before I arrived. (I had met Piper briefly and only in passing when I visited Bethel a couple years before I joined the faculty. He left Bethel to pastor Bethlehem Baptist Church in downtown Minneapolis.)….
….One day a very fine, eager, passionate theology student followed me from class to my office. (I still remember his name after all these years!) He sat next to my desk and said (I quote): “Dr. Olson, I am sorry to tell you this, but you are not a Christian.” Naturally, to say the least, I was taken aback. I asked him why he would say that. His answer was “Because you’re not a Calvinist.” I then asked him where he got the idea that a non-Calvinist could not be a Christian. His response: “From my pastor—John Piper.”
Here, Olsen has openly admitted he has been told diligently that he is in error. An actual Christian has gone to him, in his office by his own admission and told him the truth. Yet in the providence of God, Olsen’s heart is hardened and he is bragging how right he is and how wrong Calvinists are. It is then not surprising to find him on Patheos along with other Satanists.

excerpt: “In fact, we’ve been quite open in interviews regarding the origins of TST, and neither me nor TST’s other co-founder had the audacity to imagine in the beginning that TST could be what it is today. We wanted an active and relevant Satanism, one that would do exactly the things that TST are doing presently.
