Pope claims that Satan is real person, and wants to change the Our Father!
Satan might be someone amongst us - as claimed by the Pope
Pope Francis insists that Satan is a real person with skin and bones in the form of a human being.
In his claim during a television interview, the Pope insisted that Satan was not a fictitious character, but rather a real human being with "dark powers."
He also claims that the devil would be more intelligent than mortals. As per the Daily Mail report, the pope refers to the "Devil" in his sermons in the Vatican often - and "praises exorcists for their work in combating the evil."
In his interview with a Catholic broadcaster in TV2000 - he is heard saying - "He is evil, he's not like mist. He's not a diffuse thing, he is a person..I'm convinced that one must never converse with Satan - if you do that, you'll be lost..he's more intelligent than us, and he'll turn you upside down, he'll make your head spin...he always pretends to be polite - he does it with priests, with bishops. That's how he enters your mind."
He concludes in a warning tone..."but it ends badly if you don't realize what is happening in time. We should tell him, 'Go away'."
Furthermore, it is interesting to note how this comes up only days after he shows interest and desire in wanting to change the interpretation of Our Father, the most well-known prayer in Christianity.
The pontiff said that the Roman Catholic Church would do better by adopting a redone translation of the phrase "lead us not into temptation" in the Italian version of the Lord's Prayer.
He announces that the current phrasing, which is the same in English and several other languages is suggestive of the idea that God is the one who has the power to choose whether or not he wants to lead us into temptation or not.
He further adds that this is due to no one, but Satan.
"That is not a good translation, because it speaks of a God who induces temptation," the Pontiff declared in the interview last Wednesday night.
He acknowledged the Catholic Church in France had opted for a different phrasing, which seemingly resolved this issue since their translation used the phrase: "Do not let us fall into temptation" instead, which, the Pope believes is hinting at how the fault is a human fault. Through this message, he hopes to encourage the world to do the same.
Catholic and Protestant believers are not sure of how to react since this prayer is part of Christian liturgical culture and memorized by children and millions of people worldwide.
Liturgical translations are usually practiced by local Churches in coordination with the Vatican. It is a translation from the Latin Vulgate, which was translated from ancient Greek, before which it was written in Aramaic, known as the language Jesus used to communicate.
The public hasn't taken to this well - and is letting the world know how they feel through Twitter updates.
