You may have thought that, after all of these years, the text of the Bible, and its subsequent translations, is probably pretty airtight. What certain passages mean is obviously an ongoing debate. But, you don’t hear most people clamoring for a line edit of the good book. Most people don’t live in France.Fearing that Catholics in the country have been reciting a version of the Lord’s Prayer that could be heard as blasphemous, French bishops have decided to edit the French-language Bible to end any apparent confusion about worshipers’ intentions when taking the time to recite the prayer.The offending phrase?

God's word attacked and undermined with doubt.Gen 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.

People believe today, that God submitted Adam and Eve to temptation, the same words as the French Lord's prayer.Jas_1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: Act_20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter IN AMONG YOU, not sparing the flock.
