Pope Francis has called for a translation of a phrase about temptation in the Lord's Prayer to be changed.
The current wording that says "lead us not into temptation" is not a good translation because God does not lead humans to sin, he says.
His suggestion is to use "do not let us fall into temptation" instead, he told Italian TV on Wednesday night.
...
One might question whether those Greek words are an accurate translation of words allegedly originally spoken in Aramaic, but as no record of those Aramaic words exists (as far as I know) I think His Holiness is on shaky ground, linguistically if not theologically.
...
Either way, it's asking "God" to stop us from being lead (by "him"), or falling into temptation, (by some other means). That would surely be asking "God" do forsake his (supposed) nature, by influencing our minds, and so curtailing out (supposed) free will.

Och aye, it's B.S.

I sit on the fence. I'm sure there are loads of Muslims, who are OK, peaceful people. But I think for them to be OK, (from my point of view), they'd have to be ignorant of, or cherry pick or re-interpret parts of their scriptural source, the Qur'an. On the other hand there are also loads of Muslims whose ideas, philosophies, theologies, practices would scare the poop out of me. And those latter ones probably get justification from their religious book.

But if you take the Bible literally, you have the same problem. To be an OK religious person of the Muslim or Christian faith, you have to  be ignorant of, or cherry pick or re-interpret parts of the scriptural sources.

So if Islam is what's in the book, and what it permits, then yes, I'm an Islamophobe.  But if Christianity is what's in their book, and what it permits, then, I'm an Christophobe too.
