Does Facebook Wreck Marriages? – “Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg changed his status to ‘married’ Saturday and received over one million ‘likes’ from his followers.

Where Are They Now? – This article tracks down some of Harold Camping’s followers and, in the aftermath of his failed predictions, asks, Where are they now?

Christ is so in love with holiness, that at the price of his blood he will buy it for us.
