It's great and very beautiful except for the part where it says that God had no reason to save us, as if Salvation was somehow unreasonable or irrational. That part is problematic. If the Logos, the eternal Word, took on flesh to save us, He definitely had a reason (logos) for doing it.

From the sense of justice the video is correct.

For what it's worth (which may not be much since this lacks a source) I distinctly remember reading one of the great early theologians like Athanasius or maybe one of the later ones like Anselm or Pasquel who stated something to the effect, "It would not have been just for God to allow His own precious creation to be destroyed by sin." So in a way it is suggested that it was just for God to save us. Again, I don't know exactly who said it or how this position is viewed by the Church today.

Andrew, God saved us because he loved us, not because of anything we do. In a sense salvation was "irrational" because we didn't deserve it. It is the "foolishness" that St. Paul talks of in 1 Corinthians.
