It’s the most well-known prayer in Christianity. It’s the prayer Jesus taught followers to pray and one of the few things that unites 2.2 billion Christians across the globe.
Pope Francis changed the phrase “lead us not into temptation” to “do not let us fall into temptation,” as mentioned in the gospel of Matthew 6:13, because the original translation implies that God induces temptation. The change, officials said, is closer to the original intent of the prayer.
A religion correspondent with Fox News stated that “He’s (Pope Francis) saying the translation isn’t good because God never makes us fall or never leads us into temptation. He actually allows us to be tempted, but we have to make a choice.”
