The Gospel in Vermont II

The heresy of the new translation.
What is heresy?  Heresy is an adherence to a religious opinion contrary to church dogma.
"Hallowed be Thy name" became "Focus your light within us - make it useful."
In the first version, we have a plea for God's holiness.   The Heidelberg Catechism says that this plea means "Help us to truly know You, to honor, glorify, and praise You for all Your works and for all that shines forth from them: Your almighty power, wisdom, kindness, justice, mercy, and truth."
Note the emphasis is on God.  The new "prayer" shifts the emphasis to us.
Bah humbug on the new "prayer."

Please pray for Vermont.
