Original Sin

If you don't understand about original sin, I don't think you've understood anything about God, the Bible, or human history even. Adam was created perfect, and Eve out of Adam. Eve was deceived by Satan into thinking that they could be like God. (Satan is still using this deception today, in pretty much every man-made religion, that is, everything but Christ.) Adam and Eve disobeyed God, their Creator, being warned previously that such disobedience would cause them to die. Die they did, and the human race was cursed with death and all of creation cursed with them.

You don't want to miss this wedding!

Matthew 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a certain king, who made a marriage feast for his son,

3 and sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the marriage feast: and they would not come.

4 Again he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them that are bidden, Behold, I have made ready my dinner; my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come to the marriage feast.

5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his merchandise;

Are you a good person?

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
--Genesis 6:5

Think you are the exception to this? That you're a good person? Proposal: lets take a recording of your thoughts over your lifetime and play them publically for all your family and friends. Good idea? Why or why not?

Do your good deeds - when you've helped the poor or whatever -- cancel your evil?

Don't worry

Jesus says not to worry. I guess He would know when it was time to worry.
Matthew 6
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

Jesus' Triumphal Entry

I have never heard anyone talk about this. Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey colt that had never been ridden. I've always hiccoughed on this. No one ever talks about how this in itself was a miracle. Horses and donkieys that have never been ridden can't just be ridden....they'll freak out. They have to be broken first. But Jesus was able to just ride one. Did He automatically break the animal? Was his presence so calming that He couldn't freak out the creature?

I found this answer on how to break a donkey colt:
