Howdy ya'll,

I'm working through 1 Corinthians & hit a snag in 1:10. The word is
KATERTISMENOI. This is a perfect Pass. ptc, that I thought - in context -
meant ''have already been made complete." I then checked it w/ Wallace
(page 418 - where he discusses this word in another context, & 626). I
recognize that sometimes the perfect can be used in a more present sense
(which is how the NIV & NASB have used it), but would it not be better to
have it translated as I have here?

Thanks in advance,

were the objects of His wrath might become the sons of His love." Eric
