Guatemala's National Archaeology Museum

I returned a week ago from spending a week in Antigua, Guatemala.  It was delightful.
We took a day trip to the National Archaeological Museum in the capitol of Guatemala City.  The collection of pre-Colombian ceramics and Mayan stone relics was spectacular.
The designs on this pot seem similar to the art in the Desert Southwest of the USA, as well as neolithic Chinese ceramics.  Our tour guide recommended going into Guatemala City only on a weekend to avoid the traffic.  Antigua was a charming town and a UNESCO World Heritage Site because it has maintained is old buildings and character.
 
The Mayan civilization was strong in Guatemala.  

I never tire of Spanish colonial churches.

CHILDREN OF GOD? BY STEVE FINNELL

Does the term"Children of God" include all mankind, regardless of religious belief? Is universal salvation a factual concept? God loves everyone, however, there are requirements and conditions to be accepted as "Children of God."

John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.

Only those who believe in Jesus have the right to become children of God.

Galatians 3:26-27 For you are sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

It is through faith in Christ and being baptized into Christ that men become children of God.

Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

Those who have believed in Jesus and have been baptized are "children of God."

Acts 4:10-12 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead---by this name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.

Only those who have been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ are "children of God."

ALL OF US ARE NOT GOD'S CHILDREN!

THERE IS NO UNIVERSAL SALVATION!
