Pope Francis Wants To Change The Lord’s Prayer
The Lord's Prayer, or the Our Father as most of call it, could be getting a change of wording if Pope Francis has his way.
Relax, he doesn't want to do anything that we haven't all wondered about. The line "and lead us not into temptation" has always sounded like we are asking God not to lead us astray, but Pope Francis says it is just a bad translation and it needs to be changed.
The Pontiff says that God is a benevolent father who would not lead us into temptation to see how we fall. Instead, he says, God would is like any other father and quickly helps those who are provoked into Satan's temptation. It appears that the French Catholic Church agrees with Pope Francis because they changed the wording in the Lord's Prayer, and on the first Sunday of Advent this year, they changed the line to 'Do not let us enter into temptation.'
The wording isn't changing the meaning of the Lord's Prayer, it is only changing what seems to be a plea to God to stop leading us down the wrong path. People who believe know that God is not the entity that is doing that, so I'm glad to see that the wording could be seeing a change soon.
