POPE OFFICIALLY CHANGES THE LORD’S PRAYER

Pope Francis has officially changed the wording of the Lord’s Prayer, after claims that the translation was misleading.  In 2017 the pontiff called for the line “lead us not into temptation” to be altered to reflect that it is not God that tempts us to sin.  He said: “It is not a good translation because it speaks of a God who induces temptation.  A father doesn’t do that.  It’s Satan who leads us into temptation, that’s his department.”  The line has now been re-written to say “do not let us fall into temptation”, following approval by the General Assembly of the Episcopal Conference of Italy.  Anglican and Protestant Bible translations will not be affected by the change.
