Jim:

You asked:
-----
>	Is it sufficient to translate these as, "each
>seeing and believing one...."  or should it be
>rendered as, "each who continues seeing and
>believing?"

Never add the gloss "continues" if your objective is
to bring out the sense of the Present tense and/or
grammatical aspect. (There could be a sense of "continues"
in relation to a word's lexical aspect, but not with
these verbs or in this context.)

Also:
-------
>	Is there any implication here of seeing and
>believing for awhile and then no longer seeing or
>believing?
------

No.

Regards,

Mark Wilson
