  • Pope Francis approves change to the Lord’s Prayer despite opposition: 'It's deeply problematic'

    Christian Post ^ | 06/05/2019 | By Leah MarieAnn Klett
    Despite opposition from traditionalists, Pope Francis has officially approved a change to the Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6:13 that replaces "lead us not into temptation" with "do not let us fall into temptation." The U.S. Catholic reports that the Vatican enacted the change on May 22 following 16 years of research by experts who found a mistake in the current translation "from a theological, pastoral, and stylistic viewpoint." Pope Francis first signaled support for amending the "lead us not into temptation" part of the Lord's Prayer in 2017, arguing that it portrays God in a false light. "A father does...

    Traditional Catholics bewildered; Pope Benedict’s direction ignoredCatholics must now recycle their old missals and get a revised, current edition of the Italian missal that includes changes to the Gloria and the Lord's Prayer. President Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti announced that Pope Francis has given the green light to the third edition of the missal on May 22. The Gloria will be revised to "Peace on Earth to people beloved by God" (pace in terra agli uomini, amati dal Signore) from "Peace on earth to people of good will" (pace in terra agli uomini di buona volontŕ). Changes in translation policy are...

    In a teaching as clear and fresh as the blue Sea of Galilee, Jesus said this is how you should pray:“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one” (Matthew 6:9–13). This prayer is a clear, straightforward pattern for developing a God-filled life. Jesus did not say, “Pray this.” He said, “This is how you should pray.”...
  • 'Lead us not into temptation': Should the wording of the Lord's Prayer be changed?

    Christian Today ^ | 12/13/2018 | Mark Woods
    Moves to change the wording of the Lord's Prayer used by Catholics around the world appear to be gathering pace as the Italian Bishops' Conference has submitted a new version to the Vatican for approval. At issue is the wording of the line usually rendered in English as 'and lead us not into temptation'. Pope Francis last year took issue with that, saying it was wrong to imagine God could tempt people to do wrong and that it was 'not a good translation'. 'A father does not lead into temptation, a father helps you to get up immediately,' he said...

    The Vatican — under the direction of Pope Francis — will soon change the verbiage in the Lord’s Prayer to clarify God does not, in fact, tempt people. The pope has taken issue with the phrase, “Lead us not into temptation,” one stanza of the Lord’s Prayer found in Matthew 6:9-13.

    The Daily Telegraph (UK) ^ | 12/8/17 | Reporters
    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”. Instead, “Our father”, which is the best known prayer in Christianity, should be said using the phrasing adopted by French bishops, which reads as “do not let us enter into temptation”. The alternative wording used in France implies that it is through human fault that people are led to sin, rather than by God. The pontiff made the suggestion during a televised interview on Wednesday evening, in which he claimed that...
  • Crowd’s Reaction After Atheists Get Lord’s Prayer Recitation Banned From High School Football Game

    An Alabama school district decided to halt its decades-old practice of reciting the Lord’s Prayer over a loudspeaker before high school football games after atheists complained — but that did little to stop fans from still belting out the biblical invocation. The fascinating moment, which united players, fans and parents from both teams, came on Friday night when the announcer called for a moment of silence in place of previous student-led prayer at Smiths Station High School games, AL.com reported. The Lee County School System decided to halt the Lord’s Prayer tradition after the Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist...
  • To whom are we to pray, the Father, the Son, or the Holy Spirit?

    gotquestions.org ^ | unknown | Got Questions Ministries
    Question: "To whom are we to pray, the Father, the Son, or the Holy Spirit?" Answer: All prayer should be directed to our triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Bible teaches that we can pray to one or all three, because all three are one. To the Father we pray with the psalmist, “Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray” (Psalm 5:2). To the Lord Jesus, we pray as to the Father because they are equal. Prayer to one member of the Trinity is prayer to all. Stephen, as he...

    “The Catechism in Six Parts: The Lord’s Prayer” So far in our series on the Catechism we’ve had the Ten Commandments and the Apostles’ Creed. The Commandments show us God’s good will for our lives, but the problem is, we don’t do it as we should, and so the Commandments show us our sin and our need for a righteousness we don’t have. Then the Creed comes along and shows us the answer to our problem, in the triune God who loves us and saves us and forgives our sins. Now that we are saved and are God’s children, the...

    A Florida pastor who took his 11-year-old daughter to a campaign-style rally for President Trump said he hoped the event would serve as a civics lesson — but that it turned instead into a spectacle where “demonic activity was palpable.” Joel Tooley, lead pastor at Melbourne First Church of the Nazarene in eastern Florida, said that when he heard that the president and first lady would be passing through town, he decided to go see them in person. “I am enough of a sentimentalist that when I found out THEEEE President was coming to town, I got online quickly and...

    RNS) The vitriol of the president’s supporters at a Trump rally has moved a Florida pastor to write a much-shared Facebook post about the mockery of religion he believed he witnessed. “I have been in places and experiences before where demonic activity was palpable,” wrote the Rev. Joel Tooley, lead pastor of Melbourne First Church of the Nazarene. The pastor said he felt the “power of the Holy Spirit of God” protecting him and his daughter as he sought to shield protesters from angry Trump fans. Tooley had brought his 11-year-old to the rally Saturday (Feb. 18) in Melbourne, he...

    Melania Trump has too many negatives to win the affections of envy-prone Americans. She is rich, tall, intelligent, well traveled, elegant, professionally accomplished, slim, stylish and photogenic in—or out of-- designer togs. She is devoted to family, lives in spectacular homes and travels by private jet. Worst of all, she won the heart of the most powerful man on the planet. At a recent Trump rally in Florida, she had the gall to pray. She read the Lord’s Prayer, into a microphone, no less. Heaven help us. There is enough in that magnificent creature to make smaller minds in every...

    Those who have made a career of trying to drive all vestiges of religion from the public square, from manger scenes at Christmas to mentioning God in the Pledge of Allegiance, were not happy when First Lady Melania Trump recited the Lord’s Prayer at her husband’s rally in Florida. The tolerant left mocked the accent of a woman and an immigrant who speaks five languages. They moaned that it was an affront to those who are not Christian. And they brought out that old canard about the separation of church and state. We have not seen such outrage since former...

    The 70-year tradition of singing the Lord's Prayer during a high school graduation was nearly eliminated by the nation's largest atheist group. The valedictorian chose to deliver it anyway. Traditionally, the Lord's Prayer was sung by East Liverpool's choir and was considered a significant part of their graduation ceremony. When the Freedom Foundation for Separation of Church and State claimed East Liverpool school's tradition was a violation, school administrators chose to oblige their wishes, cancelling the song, avoiding a legal battle. Larry Walton, school board president said the decision not to fight against the atheist group was a basic matter...

    The new "Star Wars" film opens next month -- but the Force won't be with the Lord. In a snub to the Church of England, an advert that was planned to coincide with the new film "The Force Awakens," has been rejected by most UK cinemas due to fears it could be offensive. Digital Cinema Media (DCM), the company that supplies advertising to Britain's main movie houses, Odeon, Cineworld and Vue, made the decision after reviewing its policy on political and religious adverts. The minute-long video features the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, and other Christians reciting the Lord's Prayer....

    The Church of England has received unlikely backing from the biologist and prominent atheist Richard Dawkins after the UK’s three leading cinema chains refused to screen its advertisement featuring the Lord’s Prayer. The 60-second advert was due to be shown before Star Wars: the Force Awakens, released on December 18, which would have guaranteed it a huge cinema audience in the run-up to Christmas. But the Odeon Cineworld and Vue chains, which control 80 per cent of screens around the country, have refused to allow it because of a policy not to allow political or religious advertising...The decision prompted an...
