God in the fidget spinner



Quote:

Given the toy's surge, it appears some branches of Christianity have found a way to use it to denote the Holy Trinity. Christian Today journalist Joseph Hartropp delved deep into the supposed correlation following Trinity Sunday on June 11.

I can see it being used as an illustration, just like pastors have used the analogy that "just because you live in a garage does not make you a car" when illustrating the point that not all church attendees are Christians. I have no problem with it being used in that context. If, however it becomes a substitute for the message, then, yes, I would have problems.

FWIW I have purchased Fidget Spinners for two of my Grandchildren, one of them is only a two pronged device, so the analogy would fall down right there.
