Would it be...

...presumptuous for me as a human to suggest that a God who loves each individual for the individual person they are would be superior to a God who only loves a faceless, sea of humanity (the masses)? If Christ and the Father are One, as He said, and as I believe, then to see the Son's Love in action is to see the Father's Love in action through Him. So when I hear Him describing the search for the single lost sheep, the Father's eye being on even a lowly sparrow, etc., and then commanding us to love our neighbors and even our enemies (who are individuals), to forgive them as our Father forgives us, this all convinces me that God does indeed care about individual persons.

To me it sounds like a kind of hell, if we will all lose our individual sense of person, to merge into some cosmic Oneness. It sounds like a different kind of annihilation of the person. But maybe I'm misunderstanding your idea? Feel free to set me straight. :)
