The textual variant concerning Romans 8:1 really doesn't have much effect on the subject matter that is discussed by Paul. We could remove verses 1 and 4 without missing the point Paul is trying to make. (from Romans 7:7 thru. 8:26) But, this introduces us to a much larger problem: “This type of practice is evident in far to many chapters in the bible.” Translators (over the centuries) have added and/or subtracted from the writings of the bible and these changes have supported many erroneous doctrines. We could add or subtract (as little one word) from a scripture and change its meaning and/or application! In Matthew 28:19 this seems to be just what happened: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit” (NIV) yet, Acts 2:38, 8:12, 8:16 and 19:5 all seem to state that Christians of the first century were baptized in only the name of Jesus! Several ancient manuscripts do not include Matthew 28:19. So, if this verse was added by a translator who believed in the trinity, the consequences of messing with the scriptures (for whatever reason) has misled millions!
