The Problem of 1 John 5:7



If anyone has studied the textual integrity of the New Testament, then they would’ve learned that the following verse is a forgery:

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. (1 John 5:7)

This verse has been proven to be a forgery, an insertion that managed it’s way into the New Testament by the pen of a tampering scribe.

Now this poses a lot of problems for us. For starters Christian apologists claim the Bible is the inerrant word of God. Yet as we can clearly see here, this verse was managed to get itself inserted into the Bible, where was God? Where was the protection?

This forgery also also makes us ask that if this could be inserted into the Bible, then what else could have been forged?

Christian apologists usually like to claim that Bible corruptions are not a big deal, that it never deals with doctrinal issues, yet in this case, 1 John 5:7 is a corrupted verse that does involve a doctrinal issue, specifically that of the Trinity. Trinitarian Christians of the past and even the present often used/use this verse to prove the Trinity, hence we have a corrupted verse which is directly linked to doctrine.

The Problems don’t simply end there, but get even worse when you think about it. Trinitarian Christians like to claim that the Bible preaches the Trinity, yet if that’s the case, then why did certain Christians need to insert a forgery to try and prove the Trinity? You see my friends, not all Christians believed in the Trinity, and this was obviously a big problem. Trinitarians knew there was a problem because the doctrine of the Trinity itself, is never explicitly found anywhere in the Bible, and due to this problem they decided to forge a verse, a verse that explicitly and clearly mentions a Trinity!

Just think of this, Trinitarians had to forge a verse to try and prove the Trinity, if that isn't a problem then what is? Surely if the New Testament so clearly taught a Trinity, then you wouldn’t have to forge and invent a verse that clearly mentions a Trinity.
