The Holy Trinity

Portion taken from Dr. Paisley's book My Plea for the Old Sword -- The English Authorised Version (KJV). "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory" (I Timothy 3:16 Authorized Version).
Dr. Ian Paisley

I John 5:7 "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost and these three are one." [Westminster Confession of Faith puts this as a proof text of the doctrine of the Holy Trinity] in Chapter two paragraph III.

The NIV removes verse seven out of their Bible and then subdivides verse eight into verse seven and eight in order to keep the same number of verses in the chapter. According to the NIV translators, those who drew up the great historic confession of the Churches of the Reformation were deceived when they used this text as proof of the Holy Trinity.

Dr. Edward Hills, 1912-1981, Presbyterian minister and graduate of Yale University with degrees from Westminster Seminary, Columbia Seminary and Harvard University and a defender of the King James Version, was attacked for defending this great Trinitarian proof text.

Ed Hills was treated shamefully. He was ridiculed, blacklisted among fellow scholars (many of whom were unworthy to unlatch the thongs of his sandals). He counted some of his old professors as friends, but William Hendriksen wrote him a sharp letter taking him to task for defending I John 5:7 calling it the nadir, the lowest point in textual criticism.
- Letter from Jay Green, March 15, 1995

The Westminster Confession of Faith gives John 1:14 and 18 as proof texts of the doctrine that Christ is the eternally begotten Son of God.

"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth"
(John 1:14. Authorized Version).

"No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him"
(John 1:18 Authorized Version).

"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:14 NIV).

"No-one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only" (John 1:18 NIV).

The NIV drops "the only begotten Son" completely from these verses.

This puts them into great difficulty and undermines the revelation of the mystery of the Trinity by calling Christ, in verse 18, "the One and only God". What then of the Father and the Holy Ghost?

They certainly err, not knowing the Scriptures.
