I note in other threads 1 John 5:7 is quoted to back trinitarian beliefs.

Whether or nor the Bible supports trinity, how do people feel about the comma Johanneum, as it is known?

The portion of 1 John 5:7 after the comma and running into paragraph 8:

"in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
(8) And there are three that bear witness in earth"

... are simply not found in older Greek manuscripts or in the quotations of scripture by most writers in the first millenium AD.

How do Biblial literalists support an apparent ADDITION to the Bible, let alone quote it?

Or do they reject it?
