Calling Out Blasphemy

First Baptist Church (Jackson, MI) Sermons

1x
Making Room at the Table
Meals are opportunities for sacred moments. In Luke 22, Jesus gives the disciples some very strange instructions to prepare for a meal. In the midst of reading Jesus’ extravagant request, we’re talking about how transforming a space into a room for a meal can be a sacred task. Our current sermon series is titled “The Table: Turning Ordinary Meals into Sacred Moments.” In this series, we’ll walk through different moments of a meal, how it relates to the gospel, and how it invites us into everyday spiritual moments. We hope you’ll join us for the series, but also that you might be intentional about your meals beyond our service time.

Why do I still struggle with the same things 20 years later?
This week, a community member asks: If God is so holy-making, why do I still struggle with the same things 20 years later? We invite people to encounter God claiming that God will change them for the better. But why does that change seem to move so slowly, or at times feel like it’s not moving at all? This week we explore praying for transformation and feeling like nothing ever changes. Responding to real questions, Pastor Dallas’s sermon series, "Real Questions," engages with real faith questions. Some of the questions might seem irreverent and you might wonder if it’s okay to talk about. If we only answer safe questions, we aren’t actually safe for questions. There aren’t always easy answers, but there is always an opportunity to grow and find God in the midst of life’s questions.

Why is religion so often used for violence?
This week, a community member asks: Why is religion so often used for violence? From Crusades to Cold Wars, religion has been invoked to inspire violence. For Christians, there are plenty of biblical stories with violence. There are stories of conquests, of plagues, of apocalyptic battles, of crucifixion. How should we read and interpret stories of violence in the Bible? What is God’s relationship to violence? Our answers make a difference in the pursuit of peace in the world. Responding to real questions, Pastor Dallas’s sermon series, "Real Questions," engages with real faith questions. Some of the questions might seem irreverent and you might wonder if it’s okay to talk about. If we only answer safe questions, we aren’t actually safe for questions. There aren’t always easy answers, but there is always an opportunity to grow and find God in the midst of life’s questions.

What are the differences between ‘Christian culture’ and following Christ?
Christians often look and sound a certain way. You know it when you see it. Sometimes they carry around big study Bibles filled with scribbles and highlighting, wear shiny cross jewelry, or eat at a Friday night fish fry. But what does it look like to follow Christ? This week, our sermon series responding to real faith questions by responding to a community member who asks: “What are the differences between ‘Christian culture’ and following Christ?” Responding to real questions, Pastor Dallas’s sermon series, "Real Questions," engages with real faith questions. Some of the questions might seem irreverent and you might wonder if it’s okay to talk about. If we only answer safe questions, we aren’t actually safe for questions. There aren’t always easy answers, but there is always an opportunity to grow and find God in the midst of life’s questions.

Are We Really Not Supposed to Judge People?
Sermon Series: "Real Questions" Responding to real questions, Pastor Dallas’s sermon series engages with real faith questions. Some of the questions might seem irreverent and you might wonder if it’s okay to talk about. If we only answer safe questions, we aren’t actually safe for questions. There aren’t always easy answers, but there is always an opportunity to grow and find God in the midst of life’s questions. This week’s question is: Are we really not supposed to judge people? In reality, we judge non-stop, like our “radar” is always on. Society ranks people by jobs, income, or status. Schools judge us and workplaces judge us. In our personal lives, we judge to see if we have anything in common with another. We judge to see if they are friend or foe. So, are we really not supposed to judge people?

If God Made Me "Perfect," Why Do I Have a Disability?
Responding to real questions, Pastor Dallas's sermon series engages with real faith questions. Some of the questions might seem irreverent and you might wonder if it's okay to talk about. If we only answer safe questions, we aren't actually safe for questions. There aren’t always easy answers, but there is always an opportunity to grow and find God in the midst of life’s questions.

What Should the Christian Response Be to Hell?

What Did You Say?
Jesus was known as a great teacher, but that doesn’t mean Jesus was always lecturing. Jesus was frequently asking questions. This week, we look at how to have spiritual conversations by being a safe place for questions. Not sure what to say; try asking questions. Sermon Series: "Now You're Talking" Do you ever struggle to talk about God and your spirituality? Most Americans do, and even most Christians do too. You’re not alone if you find yourself wishing you had more meaningful conversations in your daily life. In our series, “Now You’re Talking,” we will explore how to have spiritual conversations. Join us this series not only by being present, but also by having spiritual conversations throughout your week.

Speak for Yourself
What’s your story? Sometimes talking about God can feel too complex or technical, but a major part of spiritual conversations is sharing your own story. This week we read Psalm 107 and reflect on celebrating our various faith stories together. Sermon Series: "Now You're Talking" Do you ever struggle to talk about God and your spirituality? Most Americans do, and even most Christians do too. You’re not alone if you find yourself wishing you had more meaningful conversations in your daily life.

Actions Speak Louder
Sometimes great conversations are less about finding the right words to say and more about finding the right experiences to talk about. This week, we’re looking at Jesus’ response to major theological questions with an invitation to experience life together.

Talk It Up
We can’t help but talk about the mundane things in life; how’s the weather? However, when we have spiritual focus, we can find that plenty meaning even in the mundane things of life. This week, we look to Paul for inspiration to use everyday experiences as the launching point for meaningful conversation. Sermon Series: "Now You're Talking" Do you ever struggle to talk about God and your spirituality? Most Americans do, and even most Christians do too.

The Talk of the Town
You’ve done and said some embarrassing things in your life. We all have. Our response to embarrassment is often to hide and be ashamed. Embarrassment, however, can also be an opportunity for positive change. This week we read about Jesus’ awkward conversation with a Samaritan woman at the well, and how being the talk of the town isn’t always a bad thing. Sermon Series: "Now You're Talking" Do you ever struggle to talk about God and your spirituality? Most Americans do, and even most Christians do too. You’re not alone if you find yourself wishing you had more meaningful conversations in your daily life. In our series, “Now You’re Talking,” we will explore how to have spiritual conversations.

Now You're Talking
Do you ever struggle to talk about God and your spirituality? Most Americans do, and even most Christians do too. You’re not alone if you find yourself wishing you had more meaningful conversations in your daily life. In our series, “Now You’re Talking,” we will explore how to have spiritual conversations. Join us this series not only by being present, but also by having spiritual conversations throughout your week. For our first week, we're examining Acts 2 and the story of Pentecost. Jesus's first disciples struggled with spiritual conversations too. At Pentecost, the disciples undergo a miraculous transformation from people who lived in fear to people who spoke with boldness about their experience. How can we make Pentecost a day that's not just in the past, but an everyday experience today?

Homeless George
With a sermon series on comebacks, we are excited to welcome Rick Morgan to preach in our series. Rick is the Pastor and Community Engagement Coordinator at the Jackson Interfaith Shelter.

Coming Back from Exile
The Bible is a grand story of exile and reunion. If you’ve experienced loss and broken relationships, reunion might not seem possible. Our Easter hope is that humanity will be reunited fully with God and each other. This week, we read from Revelation about the Christian hope for the restoration of all things. The season of Easter is a season of restoration. Jesus was restored to life and vindicated against his accusers. In Easter’s resurrection, we are restored too. The hopeless are restored to purpose. The scattered are restored to a community. The injured are restored to health. Life wasn’t easy in 2020. After a year of global trauma, you are not alone in seeking a new moment of peace, hope, and joy. Join us in the season of Easter as we read from the stories of Jesus’ followers who are restored and given purpose for the journey ahead. May we all find the courage to spread the good news to those around us. Sermon preached by Pastor Dallas Flippin on Sunday, May 9, 2021 at the First Baptist Church of Jackson, MI.

Coming Back from Violence
We’ve all been hurt. When we get hurt, we often retaliate. The cycle of pain continues. How does it stop? This week, we look to Acts 9:1-19 and the story of Paul’s transformation from persecutor to an apostle for an example of hope for restoration. The season of Easter is a season of restoration. Jesus was restored to life and vindicated against his accusers. In Easter’s resurrection, we are restored too. The hopeless are restored to purpose. The scattered are restored to a community. The injured are restored to health. Life wasn’t easy in 2020. After a year of global trauma, you are not alone in seeking a new moment of peace, hope, and joy.

Coming Back from Denial
Have you ever turned your back on someone? Has someone turned their back on you? This week we’re examining stories of those who let their friends, families, and faith down by disassociation, and what it looks like to come back from denial. There’s hope for restoration! The season of Easter is a season of restoration. Jesus was restored to life and vindicated against his accusers. In Easter’s resurrection, we are restored too. The hopeless are restored to purpose. The scattered are restored to a community. The injured are restored to health. Life wasn’t easy in 2020.

Coming Back from Doubt
It’s natural to doubt. If we didn’t doubt, we’d end up believing all sorts of misinformation and lies. But sometimes doubt leads to unbelief, and unbelief keeps us from good news. Is there a place for doubt in faith? The season of Easter is a season of restoration. Jesus was restored to life and vindicated against his accusers. In Easter’s resurrection, we are restored too. The hopeless are restored to purpose. The scattered are restored to a community. The injured are restored to health. Life wasn’t easy in 2020.

The Greatest Comeback
Jesus was raised, what's left to say? Sometimes we visualize Jesus' resurrection as the victory celebration and that all the work was finished. In some ways that's true, but it's not the whole story. God's restoration work continues. There is much that is unfinished that needs healing. Jesus is leading the greatest comeback of all time, a return to our divine purpose, rest, and life.    In our series, "The Greatest Comeback," we examine Easter as a season of restoration. Jesus was restored to life and vindicated against his accusers. In Easter’s resurrection, we are restored too. The hopeless are restored to purpose. The scattered are restored to a community. The injured are restored to health. Life wasn’t easy in 2020. After a year of global trauma, you are not alone in seeking a new moment of peace, hope, and joy.

Easter - Words Aren't Enough
Celebrate Easter hope with us! After a difficult year, join us in celebrating the mystery of resurrection amidst death, the mystery of hope amidst despair, the mystery of life amidst death. The Easter message invites us to reflect on that hope which defies simple words. Let us hope that life might lift us up together. Christians throughout history have longed to follow Jesus more faithfully and not settle for a popular, cultural Christianity. This Lenten season, our sermon series, “In God’s Name,” examines the ways we describe God and God’s actions in the world. By Good Friday, Jesus will be charged with blasphemy for announcing and living out God’s liberation for the world. As we faithfully follow God, we should not be surprised that others, particularly other Christians, might consider our devotion to be blasphemy too. This Lent, join us in committing to more faithfully following our liberating God. Sermon preached by Pastor Dallas Flippin on Sunday, April 4, 2021 at the First Baptist Church of Jackson, MI.

Palm Sunday: Responding to Jesus
God’s transformative power creates a world that is more beautiful, loving, and good. Despite this, we often respond poorly to God’s transforming presence. For Palm Sunday, we reflect on Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem to polar responses. Some cheered. Others Sneered. How might we respond today? The scripture readings are from Matthew 21:6-10 and 26:57-68. Christians throughout history have longed to follow Jesus more faithfully and not settle for a popular, cultural Christianity. This Lenten season, our sermon series, “In God’s Name,” examines the ways we describe God and God’s actions in the world.

Blaspheming God's Liberation
This week’s sermon text is filled with the unusual. Jesus is accused of illicit magic. The ruler of demons is identified as Beelzebul. Jesus acknowledges the work of Pharisaic exorcists. And that’s just the backdrop for our continued conversation about the use of God’s name. While the usual Gospel tension is with Jesus being wrongfully accused of blasphemy, this week, we explore Jesus accusing his religious opponents of blasphemy. How do we identify powers that change the world as either God’s liberating power or the destructive powers of chaos? Explore with us! Christians throughout history have longed to follow Jesus more faithfully and not settle for a popular, cultural Christianity. This Lenten season, our sermon series, “In God’s Name,” examines the ways we describe God and God’s actions in the world.

Pastor Jamin uses Genesis 1:26-27 as a launching point to talk about what it means to bear the image of God in the world as opposed to the images of idols. In our series, "In God's Name," we examine the ways we describe God and God’s actions in the world. By Good Friday, Jesus will be charged with blasphemy for announcing and living out God’s liberation for the world. As we faithfully follow God, we should not be surprised that others, particularly other Christians, might consider our devotion to be blasphemy too.

The Blasphemy of Denied Forgiveness
In a world tempted to hate and ostracize, forgiveness can be scandalous. Jesus forgave a man’s sins and what was the response? Some in the room thought forgiveness was blasphemy. This week, we are exploring the radical forgiveness. Christians throughout history have longed to follow Jesus more faithfully and not settle for a popular, cultural Christianity. This Lenten season, our sermon series, “In God’s Name,” examines the ways we describe God and God’s actions in the world.

Calling Out Blasphemy
Sermon preached by Pastor Dallas Flippin at the First Baptist Church of Jackson, MI on Sunday, February 28, 2021.   In a world where people invoke God’s name for all sorts of causes, inevitably God’s name is invoked on the side of injustice, violence, and lies. Have you witnessed the disrespect of God’s name? How do you talk about it? This week, we read from 1 Samuel 3 and the story of Samuel and Eli.  Christians throughout history have longed to follow Jesus more faithfully and not settle for a popular, cultural Christianity.  This Lenten season, our sermon series, “In God’s Name,” examines the ways we describe God and God’s actions in the world. By Good Friday, Jesus will be charged with blasphemy for announcing and living out God’s liberation for the world. As we faithfully follow God, we should not be surprised that others, particularly other Christians, might consider our devotion to be blasphemy too.

Blasphemy in the Wilderness
Blasphemy isn’t just a kind of profanity. We’re accustomed to people cursing God’s name, but this week we reflect on the times we blaspheme God in times of blessing. As we read Nehemiah’s summary of the liberated Hebrew people wandering in the wilderness, we’ll reflect on how quickly people people turn to blaspheme God in unexpected ways. Christians throughout history have longed to follow Jesus more faithfully and not settle for a popular, cultural Christianity. This Lenten season, our sermon series, “In God’s Name,” examines the ways we describe God and God’s actions in the world.

The Divine Embrace
We’re often afraid to try and restore broken relationships with our coworkers, neighbors, friends, and family. When we avoid our broken relationships, we also avoid glimpses at the divine embrace, where God brings healing and hope. This week, we read about the moment Esau and Jacob meet each other 20 years after their relationship was broken by deception. Join us as we listen for how God calls us to the transformative work of reconciliation. In the series, “Sibling Rivalry,” we are studying the stories of Esau and Jacob to understand both the challenges and hope for dysfunctional relationships. In so doing, we hope to highlight what real reconciliation looks like, not a cheap artificial unity that makes reconciliation sound easy, but a reconciliation that is a part of the transformative journey with God.

Sibling Rivalry: We've Got History
Today's sermon is the start of a new sermon series, “Sibling Rivalry.” In a world of broken and dysfunctional relationships, we look to Esau and Jacob for understanding how problems emerge and for what seeing God in the midst reconciliation can look like.   In the series, we will examine the real challenges of relationships, not the cheap artificial unity talk that makes reconciliation sound easy. While reconciliation is difficult, it is a part of the transformative journey with God.   This week’s message, “We’ve Got History,” starts with the history and systems that we are born into that cause conflict and a study of Genesis 25:19-34.

I Didn't Expect Him to be Faithful
When things are difficult, there is a temptation to abandon ship. In a year of isolation, we look to Christmas for the reminder of God’s presence in our midst. Even more, God calls on us to be faithful to God and to each other, companions on our shared spiritual journey. This week, we learn from the Gospel of Matthew about faithfulness as we read about how Joseph chose to remain faithful in the face of unexpected news. This is our fourth week in our series, An Unexpected Christmas. Advent is a season of anticipation for the light that emerges in the darkness. We anticipate hope in the midst of despair. We anticipate faith in the mist of wandering. We anticipate love in the midst of hate. While we anticipate God’s transformative work, we acknowledge that God’s ways are often difficult to predict even when we’re anticipating them. As we read the biblical story of the events leading up to the birth of Jesus, we read of people’s responses to God’s unexpected ways. This Advent, facing a year full of dashed expectations, let us continue the tradition of hopeful anticipation. Sermon preached by Pastor Dallas Flippin on Sunday, December 20, 2020.

We too often read the Bible in a monotone manner, missing the dynamics of the story. We miss the painful low moments of grief. We miss the jubilant shouts of praise. This week, we are learning from the poetic and musical responses to the original Christmas story. People respond differently to Christmas, both in the past and today. What is it to embrace the unexpected movement of God with language that elevates into music? This is our third week in our series, An Unexpected Christmas. Advent is a season of anticipation for the light that emerges in the darkness. We anticipate hope in the midst of despair. We anticipate faith in the mist of wandering.
