These are all points of discussion BECAUSE the church has implemented a personal view into mainstream thinking on this.

For every Sin we have perpetrated against us, we take personally, only a creator would see it as a sin against himself.
However on this subject presented, the trinity doctrine is very important. If you carefully listen to the video provided you'll see that his entire reasoning is based on this doctrine. take the doctrine out of the equation and he simply has not got a point.
In the Hindu religion, Brahman (Devanāgarī: ब्रह्मन् bráhman) is the eternal, unchanging, infinite, immanent, and transcendent reality which is the Divine Ground of all matter, energy, time, space, being, and everything beyond in this Universe. The nature of Brahman is described as transpersonal, personal and impersonal by different philosophical schools. In the Rig Veda, Brahman gives rise to the primordial being Hiranyagarbha that is equated with the creator god Brahmā.
According to the Puranas, Brahma is self-born (without mother) in the lotus flower which grew from the navel of Vishnu at the beginning of the universe.
This is because Brahma signifies a personification of Brahman (God) or is a manifes- tation of Brahman (God) .
The Vishnu Sahasranama declares Vishnu as Paramatma (supreme soul) and Parameshwara (supreme God). It describes Vishnu as the All-Pervading essence of all beings, the master of—and beyond—the past, present and future, the creator and destroyer of all existences, one who supports, sustains and governs the Universe and originates and develops all elements within.
One says that "there are n − 1 degrees of freedom for residual."
Degrees of freedom in physics
In physics, for each particle belonging to a system, and for each independent direction in which movement is possible, two degrees of freedom are defined, one describing the particle's momentum in that direction, the other describing the particle's position along an axis defined by that direction.
A more general definition
In statistical mechanics, a degree of freedom is a single scalar number describing the classical micro-state of a system. The micro-state of a system is completely described by the set of all values of all its degrees of freedom.
If the system studied can be described as a set of mechanical particles, then degrees of freedom are defined in the same manner as above. Thus, a micro-state of the system is a point in the system's phase space.
It must be noted that for a system, a micro-state defined by using degrees of freedom is intrinsically a classical state. This is because for a quantum micro-state, defining a precise value of both the position and momentum of a particle violates the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
Father Gabriel ascends the mountains of Brazil to bring christianity to the natives. He is successful and brings about a golden age among them. Mendoza, a slaver, kills his brother in a fit of rage, and only Fr. Gabriel's guidance prevents his suicide. Gabriel brings Mendoza to work at his mission with the natives, and Mendoza finds peace and asks to become a priest. The church , under pressure, cedes the land to the Portuguese which will allow slavers in again. Mendoza breaks his vows and organizes the natives to resist while Gabriel warns him to help them as a priest

the greatest flaw in this video is that it is based on a doctrine, a doctrine set by caesar augustinus if Im not mistaken at the council of geneve about 400 years AFTER Jesus walked the earth... what doctrine? the one doctrine wich the majority of christians accept as gospel while there is not 1 reference in the bible about it... Trinity.. this doctrine is easily debunked and consequentially this thread is as well...
anybody waiting for some "slappin with scriptures" just ask..
