Abstract

WOOLDRIDGE, Darryl  and  LIOY, Daniel. Living in the not-yet. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.1, pp.01-09. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v71i1.2100.

This article is derivative of a larger study that discusses God as the centre of an often inarticulate, innate human desire and pursuit to enjoy and reflect the divine image in which every human being was created. The purpose of this article is to affirm the human elemental pursuit, as God's intent, to fulfil this created, intrinsic human desire in the now, or what is referred to here as proleptic, spiritual transformation (PrōST). Moreover, the primary aim of this article suggests investigation of whether individuals must wait for the afterlife to have purification and spiritual transformation fully or largely 'worked out'. That is, the eventual would demonstrate that PrōST, an experience of transformation and kingdom life, usually reserved for heaven in eternity, is greatly available today.
