OK. My interpretation of that text is:so I ask for clarification of your interpretation.
Jesus Christ is the Logos of God, He is that by and in whom 'all things consist'.
Eternal life, to me, is the participation in the Logos, which is the participation in the Triune Godhead ...
I also believe, and hope and pray, that all may come to participate in this life, and through that participation come to know 'the way, the truth and the life' that is in Him ... made known to us by the self-disclosure of God in the Incarnation.
Nature religions are feelings and intimations of this promise, so those who are called to follow this way are not necessarily worshipping something other, but something not as fully understood ...
According to His will, He has been known 'ahead of time' as it were, and this is the eschatalogical dimension of the Mystical Body of which St Paul speaks in terms of Nuptial Union and St John in terms of filial adoption.
So I believe that it is God's will that all participate in the Mystical Body, Divine Union ... and that in so doing, they will come to know Him ... "We see now through a glass in a dark manner; but then face to face. Now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known."
1 Corinthians 13:12
