The Two Old Men by Caesar Malan
The two conversations are of men with different characters. The first one, called Old Man, was confident of being a Christian and going to heaven, because he was generally a good person. The second man called Old William, was convinced of his corrupt nature and so trusted in Christ for his salvation, but was plagued by thoughts of past unworthiness. “Happy are those who, while journeying here, are enabled to look to the Savior. Old age has no terrors for them.”
