Vatican Radio is reporting that Pope Francis has called upon the Roman Catholic Church to “adjust the translation” to one of the lines in the Lord’s prayer.
Instead of the line, “lead us not into temptation,” the Pope would like to change it to, “do not let us fall into temptation”. The Pope claims God does not lead you into temptation. He says it’s Satan who leads you into temptation… but, not everyone agrees with the Pope’s decision.
Bishop Ronald Johnson of the New Covenant Church of Christ says, “I don’t believe in changing anything in the word of God because the scripture says we are not to change the word of God and we would be cursed if we do”.
Patty, of Erie, says, “I don’t know. Every time we get a new a new Pope in, he changes everything”.
Megan McClelland, a Freshman at Gannon University, says, “I don’t think it should be changed. It’s fine the way it is”.
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”.
The Pope praised the French Catholic Church, which decided to adopt the updated translation at the beginning of this month.
