1 John 5:7-8 reads, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.” We all know this passage was not a part of the original manuscripts, however it is retained in the KJV/NKJV but moved to the footnotes in more accurate translations using better and more recent manuscripts such as the NIV/ESV. Do you think it could be possible that God could have inspired Desiderius Erasmus to have added it to the text? Or would suggesting such a view mean that I am open to the heresy known as New Revelation? None of the modern Greek texts (UBS 4, Nestle-Aland 27, Majority Text) contain the Comma Johanneum, but only the Textus Receptus contains it. While this passage is in the Latin Vulgate and many other Latin Manuscripts its not in the original text and probably not inspired by God. What do you say? PS- This is not a CAL vs. Armin thread so do not turn it into one.
