The Problem of 1 John 5:7

Sami Zaatari


If anyone has studied the textual integrity of the Bible then they would know 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, and an insertion made into the New Testament. Now indeed this poses a lot of problems for us, for starters Christians claim the Bible is the word of God, and that it is protected from tampering and corruption. Yet as we can clearly see here, this verse was managed to be inserted into the Bible, where was God? Where was this protection? It also makes us ask that if this could be forged into the Bible, then what else could have been forged, and are all verses in the Bible authentic. It also makes us ask how competent is the God of the Bible, if he is not able to protect his book from this forgery then this means the Bible is a book that anyone can tamper with, and insert what you want!

Christians 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. Also as I said, Christians even now still use this verse! Can you believe that? A verse that has been proven to be a forgery is still being used by Christians as evidence, this merely highlights the wide ignorance of Christian followers, that they really don't know much about their faith and book. In fact I have a request for my readers, go talk to any Christian you know, and ask them what they think of 1 John 5:7, do not even infer that this passage is corrupt, just ask your Christian friend what he/she thinks of this verse, and indeed you will be surprised to see that many of them will not know that this verse is a corrupted forgery.

Now you would think that the problems end there, but they don't, the problems only get worst. Trinitarian Christians like to claim that the Bible preaches the Trinity, yet if that is the case, then why did certain Christians need to insert a forgery to try and prove the Trinity? You see folks, not all Christians believed in the Trinity, this was a big problem, and Trinitarians knew there was a problem because this doctrine is not explicitly found anywhere in the Bible, and due to this problem they decided to forge a verse, which explicitly and clearly mentions a Trinity! Folks, 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?!

It is quite clear my friends, the Bible cannot be trusted, and the doctrine of the Trinity is not in the Bible, if it was, then Christians wouldn't need to forge the doctrine into the Bible.

And Allah Knows Best!
