Pope Francis Changes Lord’s Prayer: Pontiff Changes ‘Lead Us Not Into Temptation’ In Jesus’ Prayer

Published

on

Pope Francis has changed the Lord’s Prayer after criticising the English translation for implying that God – not Satan – leads people into temptation.

Francis approved an alteration the line ‘lead us not into temptation’ which now reads ‘do not let us fall into temptation’, which is closer to the French translation.

Speaking about the change back in 2017, Francis said: ‘It’s Satan who leads us into temptation, that’s his department.’

The pontiff continued: ‘I am the one who falls. It’s not him pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen.

‘A father doesn’t do that, a father helps you to get up immediately.’  The change comes after 16 years of research by Biblical scholars, and corrects what they believe was an error when the prayer was translated.

It is thought that Jesus originally spoke the prayer in Aramaic, before it was translated into Greek and other languages. The English version of the prayer is derived from the Greek translation.

The Greek word in question, eisenenkes, is found in the original New Testament in Matthew 6:13.

Francis also approved changes to The Gloria from ‘Peace on earth to people of good will’ to ‘Peace on Earth to people beloved by God.’

During the General Assembly of the Episcopal Conference of Italy, President Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti announced the approval of a third edition of the Messale Romano in May, ‘in the wake of the liturgical reform.’ The Bible has been edited many times over the years as errors were discovered with translating the ancient work.

Perhaps the most infamous version, Robert Barker’s King James Bible, published in 1611, omitted a key word from the seventh commandment. In that edition the commandment read ‘thou shalt commit adultery’. The correct version is, of course, ‘thou shalt not commit adultery’.

I Own Bujjingo – Teddy Naluswa: You Have Done Everything To See Your Husband’s Downfall, Get His Name Out Of The Media, Focus On God – HPM Elder Fires Back…

Published

on

Teddy Naluswa, the embattled former wife to House of Prayers Ministries (HPM) pastor Alouysious Bujjingo has told the New Vision newspaper that Bujjingo will soon return to her because she owns him.

In an interview in their Sunday newspaper, Naluswa, who was found at her newly formed World of Salvation Church, told Carol Kasujja that she will not sign the divorce papers until Bujjingo returns to her.

Meanwhile, a HPM church elder who told us not to reveal his name because Bujjingo refused them to make any public comments on the matter told the Grapevine that, “Teddy accepted to be used by the enemies who want her husband down. These are big pastors in some big churches and some media proprietors. She has failed to do what every bible believing Christian/wife should do (report her matter to God through prayer). She has put her trust in people. The very people by the way who want to put her former husband down. Why does she allow to be used?”

He added, “before she left, she made sure that the whole church is split. She convinced some church elders, who are now in her new church, convinced some choir members, who are now in the choir of her new church and made sure that they put Bujjingo down.”

He said, “She is working with one of the big media houses in the country with the help of other pastors who are pulling the strings from the background. You know people are judgmental, but let us leave God to be the judge. She is already being exposed; her intentions are being put in broad day light. She has started a church and she is already using all the people who she influenced using divisionism from HPM.”

“Every time the matter is getting out of the news, Naluswa and the team of pastors that are derailing her go through that big media house to bring the matter back and incriminate Bujjingo, if those are not ill intentions what is it!” he wondered.

“Maybe Bujjingo would be hers if he belonged to the devil, remember the Lord we serve is a jealous God. Jesus said, In Mathew 12:30 and Luke 11:23 (Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters). She (has) worked so hard to scatter the believers and divide them. She is still doing so even outside the church. What kind of wife does that?My problem with her is her continued use of that media house that her handlers pay to endlessly drag Bujjingo into their matters. They always get a new angle to the story and make sure it gets space on their front pages,” he said.

Asked about Naluswa’s interview where Naluswa claims ownership of Bujjingo, the church elder said, “Some of us know Naluswa. She openly destroyed and scattered her husband’s church in the name of greed? Her problem is she wants to be in charge of everything including the husband. She wanted to be the man in Bujjingo’s house. What hasn’t she done to see Bujjingo’s downfall and death? She did everything to defame and destroy Bujjingo’s personality, what else does she want?

She took elders, she took followers and funnily, she is still using his name for her cheap popularity.  She is still not ashamed to say Bujjingo is hers. These are things that can be seen by a blind person.”

He added, “When you read the interview, she used the whole interview to attack and discredit Bujjingo, you can clearly see her goal and the intentions of her handlers, but God is good, and he will finally judge on this matter, already some of the things that Bujjingo complained about are coming true, the more she continues to climb, the more the world will see her nakedness.”

Bujjingo asked court to allow her divorce his wife over irreconcilable differences. However, Naluswa told court that she cannot allow the divorce. The matter is still before Kajjansi Chief Magistrate Mary Babirye.

Pastor Bujjingo Is A Revolutionist Of Our Time, Like Martin Luther, God Is Using Him To Bring Revival To Our Nation: He Has Forced Us To Read The Bible To Defend Our Faith – Edward Kabunga…

Published

on

Edward Kabunga has praised House of Prayer’s ministries International Pastor Alouysious Bujjingo as a revolutionist of our time for forcing Ugandans to search the scriptures and defend the faith.

Kabunga equated Bujjingo to Martin Luther, a German priest and theologian of the Protestant Reformation who taught that salvation and, consequently, eternal life are not earned by good deeds but are received only as the free gift of God’s grace through the believer’s faith in Jesus Christ as redeemer from sin, even though the ‘men of God’ during Luther’s time preached that salvation was earned through good deeds.

Pastor Aloysius Bujjingo has caused a storm in the religious circles and has come under fire over a statement he made recently on marriage vows.

According to Bujjingo, there is no scripture in the Holy Book that says that married people can only separate when one of them is dead. Bujjingo says that because of this unbiblical vow, so many people including religious leaders have lost their lives and many are suffering silently in abusive marriages and can’t come out because they made the vow.

Bujjingo even challenged those who are against him to come to his Salt Media TV/radio station and they have a live open debate by reading the scriptures live on TV.

Those who support Bujjingo say that the marriage vow is from the Book of Common Prayers (BCP) which was authored by English Reformation following the break with Rome.

Wikipedia says, “Book of Common Prayer (BCP) is the short title of a number of related prayer books used in the Anglican Communion, as well as by other Christian churches historically related to Anglicanism. The original book, published in 1549 in the reign of Edward VI, was a product of the English Reformation following the break with Rome.

Some examples of well-known phrases from the Book of Common Prayer are:

  • “Speak now or forever hold your peace” from the marriage liturgy.
  • “Till death us do part”, from the marriage liturgy.[e]
  • “Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust” from the funeral service.
  • “From all the deceits of the world, the flesh, and the devil” from the litany.
  • “Read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest” from the collect for the second Sunday of Advent.
  • “Evil liver” from the rubrics for Holy Communion.
  • “All sorts and conditions of men” from the Order for Morning Prayer.
  • “Peace in our time” from Morning Prayer, Versicles.

However, those against Bujjingo, led by Rt. Rev. Johnson Twinomujuni, the Bishop of West Ankole, maintain that the vow is biblical.

Below is Edward Kabunga’s submission verbatim:

The message of Pastor Aloysius Bujjingo is like that of the Revolutionist Martin Luther because it has caused many to read their Bible. This is a blessing in disguise. Just like in the dead lion killed by Samson; when he went back, he found honey in it!

God can use anything or anyone to bring revival. In our days, He has decided to use pastor Aloysius Bujjingo to bring revival to our nations. The man has put the nation on tension!!! (Banange omusajja atutadde kubukenke obutalaba omutume Deo Mukasa Balabyekubbo)

The question is; ” Who is the beneficiary in what is happening to the church and nation?” In my opinion, God is the one benefiting from what is happening. Philippians 1:15-18

V15 Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry but other from good will. V18 What then? Only that in every way whatever in pretence or truth Christ is proclaimed and in that rejoice.

NB: We are now in search for Scriptures in order to defend our faith. Don’t be angry with Pastor Aloysius Bujjingo.

(Tuli mukutikula byawandiikibwa emisana na kiro okwetasa!!nokunonya Katonda. Ekyo kyebayita okudda obugya abantu bonna okudamu okunonya ebyawandikibwa ku nsonga ezitalizimu. Kale Pastor Aloysius Bujjingo temunyigira!)

Pastor Aloysius Bujjingo is a vessel chosen in our generation to bring revival to the church and nations.

Don’t Be Stupid, You Are Fools To Think That Bujjingo’s Followers Will Run To Your Churches – Mirundi Blasts Pastors Kiganda And Bugembe, Reveals Shocking Information About Teddy

Published

on

Self-claimed media consultant Joseph Tamale Mirundi has blasted and warned pastors under the National Fellowship of Born-Again Pentecostal churches to stop celebrating house of prayers ministry international senior pastor Aloysius Bujjingo’s woes.

Mirundi said that born again pastors must learn that the reason why people are still at Bujjingo’s church is because of the miracles Bujjingo performs and his preaching and the day they discover that he no longer performs to their expectations, they will leave on their own.

“I was suprised to see the likes of pastor Bugembe, David Kiganda cerebrating the troubles of their fellow pastor Bujjingo stupidly, thinking that they will get his followers.  They don’t know the reasons behind Bujjingo’s problems, it’s a big scheme that can only be understood by us who eat enough food,” the celebrated political analysts stated. 

He wondered why Bishop David Kiganda sided with the mafias who want to put Bujjingo down yet he also once tested the bitterness of these mafias when he was embarrassed in public that his wife was snatched by a chapatti maker which was not true.

He insisted that the scheme to put Bugingo down was planned by mafias because of his steady progress spiritually and economically which made him a political threat to those who are fighting to succeed President Museveni.  A bitter Mirundi blasted the women who participated in the demonstration against Bujjingo saying that they were just hired as machineries to humiliate the man of God. 

He boasted that through his Mirundi Internal Security Organization (MISO), he has collected enough evidence pinning Naluswa that she was cursed by her father after conspiring with her mother to harass the old professor until he died.

The former press secretary to the president further blasted journalists who were beaten at Salt Media based home at Lugujja in Lubaga division, he branded them as machineries hired to tarnish Bujjingo’s name like they did to him during his tenure as the President’s press Secretary.

“I was accused and called all sorts of names, that man Kulubya of Bukedde even called me a mad,” a bitter Mirundi said.  The cerebrated journalist warned that if journalists don’t stop being used, the public will continue beating them up.  However, Mirundi blamed Bujjingo for miscalculating and always responding to his enemies.  He predicted that Bujjingo will not lose the battle though he must be prepared for the war if he is to decisively defeat his enemies.
