I have said it before, and I will say it again: I identify as a Christian Universalist, whereas I believe all may find themselves in full unity and communion with God, who is the Holy Light, despite how they live their lives on this "fragile planet Earth, our Island Home" to quote a line from Eucharistic Prayer C of the 1979 Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. Now for some-this may seem to be all tuff fluff, very sugarcoated-and padded, yet for those who were brought up in a traditional brand of Christianity, there may be some specific implications to work out. Specifically:
If all may be redeemed, where does that leave Satan, the master of the fires of Hell?
(Rendition of Satan, from Dante's Inferno)
It is a firm belief of mine that if one believes that God is Love, and Power, and Truth, and Light- that surely, if ones conscious causes us to believe in any sort of hellfire-be that temporary or otherwise (I am against the otherwise firmly, but that's besides the point), that Satan surely will come back into the Holy Land of Light, casting aside the darkness, anger, and hellfire-to fully embrace God as a Child of the Holy Light.
Some may think: Why would The Evil One leave behind the role that is already filled by him? The answer is: Because all will be redeemed and enter the gates of Heaven, including himself. The God of Love, Power, Truth, Light-would never want to condemn any of creation to an eternal state of pain, torture, and outcast-God wants to hold all of creation in embrace, in the warm, compassionate, venerable hands of The Divine. Hellfire may be seen as a purification process-if ones conscious has any use for hellfire at all-to bring one to a greater sense of purity, to then enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
All of Gods creation-was made by God-at the explicit will of God-out of the sheer volume of Love that is expressed from divinity throughout the entirety of creation. There is no need to fear, there is no reason to be afraid, for you are loved-you, and each and every one of God's creations are a Child of the Holy Light.
