In a recent interview with ThinkFwd: host, Spencer Burke, Michael shares what he calls evolution theology, and his belief that the “bad news” is our instinctual “sinful” nature and our unchosen instincts fighting within ourselves. Michael sees that there is a “flat-earth Christianity” and “evolutionary Christianity”-the first one with a perspective that holds to beliefs from the times people thought the world was flat; and the second that has an evolutionary perspective of Christianity. Nothing, Michael says, is more important than having people with diverse backgrounds talk together and really hear each other-coming together from a place of learning, not just “I need to convert you.” And so, this is the message he’s repeating wherever he goes. “Let’s get right with God-let’s have integrity.” That means, aligning ourselves with reality-as it really is, not as we wish it was.
