“A Guide Through 1 John”: an intelligent and reassuring commentary of John’s epistle on eternal life. “A Guide Through 1 John” is the creation of published author Benjamin Ramsaur, a husband and father of three who was saved at a young age and has since had experience in youth and pastoral ministry, including short-term mission trips to Ukraine and Honduras.
Ramsaur writes with conviction, “John’s reassurance to the saints is twofold: First, he sets forth the testing facts of righteousness, love, and belief. Hence, if one practices righteousness, evidences brotherly love, and believes that Jesus Christ came in the flesh, it shows one to belong to God. Second, he gives straightforward indicatives that they indeed are true Christians. We may call these indicatives ‘declaratives’. They declare that the remaining church members have the Spirit, already know the truth, belong to God, etc. In short, that they are indeed children of God.
There is something of a balance with this twofold method of encouragement. On the one hand, if John would have only given the testing facts without declaratives, then this might have resulted in the saints becoming unnecessarily troubled concerning their salvation. They were already perplexed in their faith and so mere tests might have discouraged them all the more. They needed an outside voice—John’s—to speak what was true about them into their lives.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Benjamin Ramsaur’s new book is as inspiring as it is timely. Ramsaur’s book deals with the extremely relevant issue of who does and does not possess eternal life within the Spirit”?
This is where the last apostle, John, decides to intervene—and Ramsaur’s clear and insightful writing makes these faith-strengthening messages accessible to a modern-day audience in need of the same guidance as those in the apostle’s time.
