Do you believe 1 John 5:7 was added?


The most contentious of scriptures in the Bible is 1 John 5:7 “And there are three that bear witness in heaven…”

According to theologians it is not in the earliest manuscripts and for that reason some say it was a later addition, possibly in support of the Trinity.  My own view is that it does not support the Trinity, as it concludes that ‘the three’ agree in One – Jesus.  However, it is also not included in some editions of the Bible (e.g. Good News Bible) and Scofiled and other editions include a footnote to point out the verse is most likely spurious. 
What do you think?
