However, I am not sure there is much support that everything/one will be reunited with God. I certainly would like to hear what parts of scripture and tradition that concept comes from, for sure. I think eternal separation will always be the worst thing possible for humans/creation - what that looks like in practice? I have no idea. But eternal fire has always seemed redundant to me.
