NTTC JAMES 4:13: “We will” or “We could”?

There is a textual issue with the passage, which concerns a difference in verb tense between the majority of manuscripts and several early manuscripts (𝔓74 𝔓100 א) B. The majority of manuscripts use the aorist subjunctive, while (𝔓74 𝔓100 א) B uses the future indicative.

MATTHEW 19:9: Is “and he who marries a divorced woman commits adultery” an Interpolation?

Textual scholar Philip W. Comfort is below in detail, but in short he argues that “and the one marrying the divorced woman commits adultery” is the original wording. This is found in (𝔓25 B C* W Z), as well as 078 Maj, but omitted in א L. He feels that the textual evidence supports the inclusion of the clause, even though it is suspected of having been borrowed from Matthew 5:32. Is he correct?
