POPE Francis has called for the Lord’s prayer to be changed – arguing that the translation used by many parts of the world goes against the teachings of the Bible.

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Francis has said the Roman Catholic Church should adopt a better translation of the phrase “lead us not into temptation” in the “Our Father”, the best known prayer in Christianity.

“That is not a good translation,” the pope said in a television interview on Wednesday night.

Francis said the Catholic Church in France had decided to use the phrase “do not let us fall into temptation” as an alternative and indicated that it or something similar should be applied worldwide.

The prayer, also called “The Lord’s Prayer”, is part of Christian liturgical culture and memorized from childhood by hundreds of millions of Catholics.

It is a translation from the Latin vulgate, which was translated from ancient Greek, which was in turn translated from Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus.

Liturgical translations are usually done by local Churches in coordination with the Vatican.


 

Pope wants to change ‘Lord’s Prayer’ as it implies God ‘induces temptation’

POPE Francis has called for the Lord’s prayer to be changed – arguing that the translation used by many parts of the world goes against the teachings of the Bible.

The Lord’s prayer is spoken by the majority of the world’s 2.2billion Christians, and is cited by the bible as the way Jesus taught his disciples to pray.
However Pope Francis has argued the Italian – and indeed the English translation – go against the teachings of the church.In the much-recited prayer, followers of the faith call on God to “lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”.Speaking to Italian broadcasters, the Pope argued this was incorrect.

Pope Francis claimed translations of the prayer go against the teachings of the church

He added Christians in France had adapted the prayer to get around the issue.Pope Francis said: “The French have modified the prayer to ‘do not let me fall into temptation’, because it is me who falls, not the Lord who tempts me to then see how I fall”.Last month the head of the Catholic church admitted that he had –f rom time to time – fallen asleep during prayer.

  1. Don’t know what to say. So I guess they don’t believe anything unless it was on video, etc!

  2. Vera Schraa says:

    He’ll have to change scripture where it implicates the Holy Spirit as a leader into temptation: Mt 4:1 [1] Then Jesus was led by the spirit into the desert, to be tempted by the devil.

  3. I started to comment but deleted it; I was being uncharitable.
