That verse was quoted by the early church fathers. It is believed that some tried to remove it from the Bible, yet failed to do so. 1 John 5:7 was quoted by Tertullian before 220 A.D. and by Cyprian of Carthage before 258 A.D. So no, it is not an invention. And it has been in existance long before Constantine of Rome.

God is like an Atom. You have a Neutron, an Electron, and a Proton. All three elements have their funtions, yet together, they all = One Atom. God is the same way. And 1 John 5:7 shows us this.

Making up your own verses again are you Campbell, shame on you, you know that's not right


King James Version 1 John 5:7

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

ptsum, I have no idea what you are talking about. I'm just reading out of the King James Bible.

Very easy.
If you believe as the Jehovah Witnesses believe, you would know that Jesus was a created being made by God. They do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Real God. He was a manufactured God. So no, they donot believe that Jesus Christ and the Real God of the Old Testament are the same.

The fathers of inventions.

The earliest occurrence of the verse in a Greek manuscript dates from the 15th century, if memory serves.

But they cannot prove what they believe.

Not sure I follow your line of thought on that shibata; did you mean that JW believe in Christmas or other "Christians".

The concept that Christmas has no reality is one that ordinary people find to have truth.

If you're a Jehovah's Witness or at least a JW sympathiser, does it make you feel comfortable that your religion repeatedly allowed dangerous sex offenders to preach at people's doors with minimal supervision?
