Pope Francis calls for Lord's Prayer to be altered Say current translation suggests God is capable of leading us “into temptation”


Pope Francis has called on the Roman Catholic Church to alter the Lord’s Prayer because he believes the current translation suggests God is capable of leading us “into temptation”.

He has suggested he wants to make a change to The Lord's Prayer,popularly known among Catholics as the “Our Father.”

According to Reuters, the Pope during a televised interview Wednesday he would prefer to adjust the phrase “lead us not into temptation,” saying that it too strongly suggested that God leads people to sin.

“That is not a good translation,” the pope said. The phrase “do not let us fall into temptation,” which the Catholic Church in France has previously decided to use, would be a more appropriate alternative and should be used around the globe, Francis said.
“I am the one who falls. It’s not him pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen,” he continued. “A father doesn’t do that, a father helps you to get up immediately. It’s Satan who leads us into temptation, that’s his department.”
The prayer originated from Jesus’s language of Aramaic, which was then translated to ancient Greek, and later to Latin.

The prayer is part of Christian liturgical culture and memorised from childhood by hundreds of millions of Catholics.
