Lead Us Not Into Bad Translations: Pope Francis Enacts Change to Lord’s Prayer

We all know the words by heart:

Our Father who art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us,

and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

That's the Catholic text of "The Lord's Prayer." But The Vatican - under the direction of Pope Francis - will soon enact a major change to the text to correct what the pope has called a bad translation.

The pope in 2017 said that the phrase found in Matthew 6:9-13 - "Lead us not into temptation" - is not correctly translated. "I am the one who falls; it's not him [God] pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen," the pope explained.

 

After 16 years of study, experts "from a theological, pastoral and stylistic viewpoint" found a significant mistake in these translations, the Daily Express reports.

According to the project, the line "lead us not into temptation" should be changed to "abandon us not when in temptation".

This proposal, which has been submitted for approval to the Vatican, is likely to be welcomed by Pope Francis, who last year noted "a father does not lead into temptation, a father helps you to get up immediately."

He added: "It is not a good translation because it speaks of a God who induces temptation."

"It's Satan who leads us into temptation, that's his department," the pope said.

The prayer has been changed before. In 1928, the words "For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory for ever and ever" were added.

Pope Francis said other translations have been altered.

"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".

The change to the prayer, also knows as the Pater Noster will change quickly. A representative from the Episcopal Conference said: "The Bishops intend for the publication of the new edition to be an opportunity to help renew the ecclesiastic community."

"Developments like these are becoming increasingly crucial in the process of Christian initiation, in workshops and in proposals for the permanent training of the clergy."

[Ron: Religions are socio-political control mechanisms. They are not necessary for spiritual development because each ensouled human being is a temple of God being indwelt by a fragment of Creatorr consciousness.

Esu Immanuel (aka Jesus the Christ) didn't incarnate to establish a religion and didn't. He came to teach divine truths that had been lost over millenia and corrupted by Pharisees and others. The Pharisees influenced Roman emperors to establish the Christian religion and they deliberately inserted false doctrines into it in an effort to eliminate knowledge of Jesus' teachings. They also organised the inclusion of the Torah into the bible as the 'Old Testament'. The Torah is an ethno-centric, genocidal, collectivist political ideology and its core contents are diametrically opposed to Jesus' teaching that human beings are here to learn to love UNCONDITIONALLY our neighbour (everyone and everything) AS self, FOR the love of god (ALL).

A major LIE inserted by the Pharisees into the Christian religion was that Jesus came to sacrifice himself for the salvation of all humans. He didn't and he couldn't. Jesus taught that ALL ensouled human beings are indwelt by a fragment of Creator consciousness and hence each is a sovereign son (daughter) of God Accordingly every individual human being is responsible for his/her own thoughts, actions and inactions, ie each must save self. That is the reason for reincarnation which was another divine teaching by Jesus that was suppressed by the Pharises. It takes myriad incarnations for a new soul to garner and learn from sufficient physical experiences to graduate in wisdom and knowledge to reach the higher levels of consciousness needed to traverse the many worlds between this lowly planet and Paradise. The growing human spirit graduates through the local system and constellation HQ's and then on to our universe HQ of Nebadon and thence to Uversa, the HQ of the super universe of Orvonton and finally to the Paradise Isle to meet with the Creator. Then the imortal spirit returns to the Creation to assist with its administration and management. Currently there are many such spirits here to assist this world and its inhabitants to progress into Light and Life.

Be aware also that Jesus did not die on the Cross but was resussicated and went to Damascus where he frightened the bejabbers out of the Pharisee, Saul of Tarsus (St Paul) whereafter he went to India, married and had children to improve humanity's DNA. He died at about age 115.].
