Matthew 6:9 [NIV] “This, then, is how you should pray: " 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 11Give us today our daily bread. 12Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.' 14For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
Wait! The bolded part insinuates that God can lead us into temptation, right? Uh, I'm sorry... I didn't think God could do that. The "Devil" is the tempter.
I caught a website where this reilgious group states that God will tempt humans, and they used the preceeding scripture as an argument. I have no rebuttal. Taken at face value, it seems this scripture is implying that God can tempt. Stinkin' NIV! It always messes with me.
The New Living Translation reads completely differently.
Anyone have any help to impart?
