Trust is the key to bliss, as we forgive our trespassers. Temptation is the path towards darkness, without which we’d never know the way to the light.
Here’s an excerpt from USA TODAY on June 6, 2019;
Pope Francis reportedly approved changes to the wording of the Lord’s Prayer, also known as the Our Father.
Instead of saying, “Lead us not into temptation,” Catholics will say, “Do not let us fall into temptation,” The Guardian and Fox News reported.
The pope said he thought the English translation of the prayer was not correct.
“It is not a good translation because it speaks of a God who induces temptation,” he told Italy’s TV2000 channel in 2017, per The Guardian. “I am the one who falls. It’s not him pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen.Ryan W. Miller, USA TODAY
Overcoming temptation is what the point was. Temptation will always be there, it’s not something we fall into. The way to the Kingdom is by right choices, so we pray every day for the resolve (by the hand of the almighty).
Obviously we must know temptation too! It’s not always what we might think it is but each one of us is faced with. As such, ascension must then be the mental capacity to rise above all thoughts that diminish bliss. Hell is the consequence of repetitive sin, whatever that might be to you.
Amazing to think that we can think our way through to a higher consciousness. It is possible to achieve a higher level of bliss, of that I’m certain but temptation will always remain a constant enemy until we leave this flesh. Due to memory, as well as input of new stimulation and ideas.
My life long key reasoning remains in tact, that we must have hopes and dreams, then strive with passion and sincerity, to improving as much as you can, to become the best version of yourself that you can make. Learn from everything, like a sponge and constantly challenge your own thinking. Try to study into the areas where you recognize as your own weaknesses.
Never stop expanding the definition of temptation and always ask yourself; “what could I do to make the world a better place?” Do You honour God by what you do and how you act? Do you treat other people as a brother?
Believe it or not I am un-Churched, just annoyed that the Pope would feel that just because he stopped wearing Red Shoes, that he can change the Lord’s Prayer. Also, he’s now a Climate propagandist for the Paris Accord. Enough already! Please Pope just solve your own problems
Pope backs carbon pricing to stem global warming and appeals to deniers – June 14
Needless to say, there are other Global leaders with opposing views and yet others with really just want war, at any and all costs and that’s what Pope’s used to be involved in talking about. What happened to peace? Why is the Pope so tempted to use his power fort he wrong things, what happened to him? The only good thing about Francis is that he’s not got a Nuke button like other global leaders, all of whom are compromised.
Now United Kingdom has been found to be spying against USA, so the leaders of the world are all at odds with one another except the 3 Kings but we all know that 2 is company and 3 is a crowd, so in the end we conclude that the single most important word in any language is Trust.
In God we Trust, there’s nothing else to have faith in.
