I believe this:

The follower of Jesus is to discover and then promote the Kingdom of God. That Kingdom has two tenses: it is already here, in each one of us; and it is still to come, when God's goodness becomes a universal norm. We are to live now 'as if' the Kingdom of God were already fulfilled.

Thanks for bringing this out. I think a lot of Universalists wanted to say the same things about salvation but never managed to keep their words as plain or clear as this.
