Pope Francis changes phrase in "Lord's Prayer"

Pope Francis changes phrase in

The trend-bucking Pontiff has taken issue with the so-called "sixth petition" of the Lord's Prayer which is traditionally recited as "And lead us not into temptation", on the grounds that God would not seek to lead a person into committing a sin.

"It is not a good translation because it speaks of a God who induces temptation", he told channel TV2000.

Madison Gardner, also a Freshman at Gannon, says, "Keeping the Lord's prayer as traditional as it is would help with the continuity and remind people what it is instead of changing everything as we go". "It's Satan who leads us into temptation, that's his department".

That's why he wants the Roman Catholic Church to consider changing the words to "do not let us fall into temptation". He says it's Satan who leads you into temptation. but, not everyone agrees with the Pope's decision.

He said the Catholic Church in France had adopted the alternative phrase, adding that it should be applied worldwide.

According to the BBC, the current translation comes from a 4th Century Latin version of the Bible - itself a translation from Anicent Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic.

"The word in question is peirasmos [from New Testament Greek] which means both to tempt and to be tested. But he's also stepping into a theological debate about the nature of evil".

Austen Ivereigh, the pope's biographer, told The Guardian he was not aware of any plans to change the translation in the English-speaking world but could "certainly see the logic of doing so".

"It speaks of a God who induces temptation", he told Italian broadcasters December 6 on the TV2000 channel. "You fiddle with it at your peril".
