Hi everyone. Why is it that in the Lord’s Prayer, we ask God to not lead us into temptation when the Bible says that God does not tempt us anyway? :shrug:
(Matthew 6:9 RSV) Pray then like this: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
(Matthew 6:10 RSV) Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.
(Matthew 6:11 RSV) Give us this day our daily bread;
(Matthew 6:12 RSV) And forgive us our debts, As we also have forgiven our debtors;
(Matthew 6:13 RSV) And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.
(James 1:13 RSV) Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted with evil and he himself tempts no one;
Please help. I’m rather confused.
