Pope Francis has called for a better translation of a phrase about temptation in the Lord's Prayer. The Pope believes current wording that says "lead us not into temptation" is not a good because God, as a good father, would not lead humans to sin. The Lord's Prayer known as the “Our Father” in America is considered by many the most revered prayer in Christianity. The pontiff prefers France's Roman Catholic Church new wording "do not let us fall into temptation" as an alternative, and something similar should be used worldwide.
