'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor
Saturday, March 23, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Our society has abandoned God. We see this in the anti-Christ heretics who deny faith in Jesus as the only way to be saved. They twist the Scriptures and reject the finished work of Christ on the cross and his resurrection.

The Apostles were uneducated men. Only Paul had training to be a Pharisee. Only those who witnessed Christ's resurrection could be called Apostles.

In regard to being born again spiritually, Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Are you a master of Israel and know not these things?” What Jesus said and what he did most closely support his deity. Jesus fulfilled the prophecies about the one who would be God on Earth. He manifested the attributes of the eternal God. Sinful men found him to be sinless. He did things only God could do.

A lunatic can claim anything, but he can't deliver on his claims. Jesus did. A liar can play mental games with people, but he can't prove anything he says. Jesus, though, was born where the God-man was to be born, lived as the God-man should live, died as the God-man was to die and lived again as only the God-man could.

What do you call Jesus? Believers know him as savior and God. But be careful— calling him anything but God will put your eternal soul in serious jeopardy. Only when you recognize that Jesus is God can you see him as the source of life. Only as you trust all of God's word — not just regarding Jesus' life, but also his deity — will you understand the importance of his death.
