In Mark 9:38 Jesus reply to his apostles not to drive out the demons seemed a little confusing, Would Pastor Broggi please explain?

We had 2 callers from the same Bible class who had the same question:  We know John the Baptist baptized the way we do with full immersion. How did the Jews baptize prior to John's ministry?

A caller would like Pastor Broggi to explain if, in Matthew 11:2-3, when John was imprisoned was he doubting when he sent word by his disciples to ask Christ  "Are You the Expected One, or shall we look for someone else"?

We had a caller who would like Pastor Carl to Explain Numbers 14:18.  If we are experiencing many trials and illness, is it because of our parents sins and Christ is "visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations?

Leslie Ann, Hilton Head Island, SC - Will the 3rd temple be built south of the Temple Mount? I heard there is excavation and archeology going on there that might point to that really being the place of Solomon's Temple, of which no stone should be left unturned.

Do we have free will? Does free will tie to predestination?

Anon, Atlanta, Ga - I do not know if you have been following some of the comments Andy Stanley has said but I would love your response.  He said as directly quoted from the manuscript of his sermon, "The foundation of our faith is not the Scripture. The foundation of our faith is not the infallibility of the Bible. The foundation of our faith is something that happened in history. And the issue is always – Who is Jesus? That’s always the issue. The Scripture is simply a collection of ancient documents that tells us that story.  Here’s why I believe this (Adam & Eve being created) actually happened. Not because the Bible says so, but because of the Gospels – Jesus talks about Adam and Eve. And it appears to me that he believed they were actually historical figures. And if he believed they were historical, I believe they were historical because anybody that can predict their own death and resurrection and pull it off – I just believe anything they say.”   Then more recently when preaching on Acts 15 he said, “First Century Church leaders unhitched the church from the worldview, value system, and regulations of the Jewish scriptures.  Peter, James, Paul elected to unhitch the Christian faith from their Jewish scriptures, and my friends, we must as well."   In his sermon, he said he was concerned that many Christians are turning away from the faith because of certain passages in the Old Testament. He argues the early church moved past the Old Testament for the sake of newly converted Gentile believers and that the resurrection of Jesus was their focus.  He said in that sermon and I quote, “The Bible did not create Christianity. The resurrection of Jesus created and launched Christianity.”
