The website “How to Talk Like a Canadian” gives some interesting tips on unique Canadian words and phrases and on the Canadian accent. For example, it says “Canadian English is quite similar to British English in many ways. Some Canadians pronounce the word [for a street] as “avenyew,” which is similar to the British pronunciation. Canadians often say “mum” instead of “mom.” They say “pardon me” more often than “excuse me.” Canadians even maintain the British spelling of many words.
Post-modern atheists these days love to try to convince people that you can’t trust the Bible. They go to great lengths in arguing that the Bible is filled with errors, which it isn’t, and isn’t historically verifiable, which it absolutely is. God knew that there would always be those who would deny the veracity of God’s Word, so time and time again, the Bible confirms its own reliability. In his first epistle to the Christians in Corinth, Paul the apostle hits this topic right on, when teaching about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. He writes this in 1 Corinthians 15:4: “that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.” The canon of Scripture wasn’t decided until the 5th century, but the writers of the New Testament spoke about what they considered Scripture. Here Paul calls the record of Jesus’ death and resurrection as Scripture. The Hebrew Scriptures prophesied about the death and resurrection of the Messiah. Jesus fulfilled these prophesies perfectly in his conception, birth, life, death and resurrection. God’s word is consistent in it writings and message – you can trust it completely as you walk with Jesus.
These have been words from the heart.
