Teens and Porn – Courtesy of Covenant Eyes, here’s an infographic with 10 stats you need to know when it comes to teens and pornography.

An Announcement about Mahaney – Dave Harvey: “In July 2011, Sovereign Grace Ministries (SGM) installed an interim Board of Directors. Our primary task was to determine C.J. Mahaney’s fitness to serve SGM as President in light of accusations made against him by a former SGM leader. … After examining the reports of these three review panels, we find nothing in them that would disqualify C.J. from his role as President, nor do they in any way call into question his fitness for gospel ministry. Therefore the Board has decided unanimously to return C.J. to the office of President, effective immediately.”

Sleight-of-Hand – This guy is phenomenal.

He who tells little lies, will soon think nothing of great ones, for the principle is the same.

—C.H. Spurgeon
