[b-greek] Romans 8:28

I have been reading some seemingly novel interpretations of Scripture at
www.jarom.net One of these is that KATA PROQESIN in Romans 8:28 refers to
the purpose of TOIS AGAPWSIN TON QEON and not to God's purpose, which is the
sense of all translations of this verse I have ever seen.

The argument given is that "his" which is supplied in every translation I
have seen, is not in the Greek.

How do we know that Paul is referring to God's purpose? Is there a hint in
the Greek? I don't have any in depth commentaries no Romans, unfortunately.
I'd love to have the full Cranfield and should buy a second-hand copy, I
guess, because I sure can't afford the recommended retail price plus GST in
Australia! [I greatly appreciated Cranfield at college: how little did I
know when it seemed expensive at 1978 prices!]
