A spurious witness for the trinity

Before to read this article I suggest to read before "the law of witnesses" to have a better understanding of this one.

The doctrine of the Trinity is found in the Bible in just one verse, and this verse is considered  spurious from the most bible's students. The Johannine comma

1 John 5:7-8

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

1 John 5:8
8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

In reality these verses should be read in this way, according to most of the students.

For there are three that bear record

the Spirit and the water and the Blood, and these three agree in one.

According to these students the word were added to help the doctrine of trinity that at that time was borning because just one fragment contains these words and all the others are without them.Anyway in our case it doesen't matter for a simple reason we are ready to accept it intergrally for another simple reason, one witness according to the Bible is not enough to prove the doctrine.

How many are the witnesses pro the idea that the Trinity are three different persons in the Bible? Hundreds you can verify reading this article "Trinity"

In the article "is God spirit"   we have verified that the Bible speaks regarding a God with a body.

Another characteristic of this particular doctrine is that God has no part and no passions.

According to His personal statement He is a Jealous God. To be Jealous is not a passion? What about the wrath of God mentioned in the scriptures? Sure these passions are not wrong  when expressed in harmony with the law of justice. Jesus purified the temple with a right wrath. Our God is not a robot but a perfect being with perfect feelings, in fact to exercise a perfect judgement He needs to have feeling like justice and mercy at the same time, only God can have a perfect balance on these two peculiar qualities We, like His offspring we ha the same qualities but not with the same perfection, for this reason  we have to learn in this life like to exercise these two different qualities in a very good way, because we will be jugded with the same judgement that we will apply to our fellow man.

To finish I intend to respect the doctrine of the Trinity like the other churches prefer. I believe that every church has the right to express and mantain its idea or belief. My purpose is that even them could do the same with us.
