The Story of Salvation; Joshua (part 2)

By Charles Johnston:

In my previous post (The Story of Salvation; Joshua part 1) we looked at Joshua’s life leading up until he arrived at Jericho. It is in Jericho that Joshua would gain his ultimate victory. If you ask any Christian, or Jew, what Joshua is known for they would most likely say  it’s for conquering Jericho.

The Prodigal Son & His Brother 


By Charles Johnston:

We are the prodigal son(s)

We’ve all heard the story of the prodigal son, even non-believers are somewhat familiar with it. I’ve heard it preached on, lectured about, I’ve read articles and blog posts about it, I’ve studied it on my own, but I’ve always come at it from point of view of the prodigal son himself.
