Moment of Truth
"The game itself is very straightforward. The contestant will be hooked up to a lie detector and asked 21 questions, each one becoming more personal than the next. If the contestant answers honestly and the lie detector confirms this, then he or she moves on to the next question. If all 21 answers pass the test, the contestant will then walk away with $500,000.
FOX leaves little doubt as to the nature of the show. The appeal of The Moment of Truth lies in watching people face uncomfortable questions about their personal lives-- questions they might lie about in other circumstances. Contestants must juggle the value of personal secrets against the desire for a quick cash payout. Adding to the stakes will be the presence of spouses, co-workers, family, and friends that will be sitting in the audience.
A new game show from Fox will pit contestants against a lie detector. All you have to do is truthfully answer questions like "Have you ever cheated on your wife?" in front of a studio audience, and you, too, could win up to $500,000!
Do your friends and loved ones tell you the truth? What deep, dark secrets are they hiding from you?"
I was hanging out with a few friends and they were talking about their new addiction to this particular TV show. I hadn't ever seen it before, so I sat quietly and listened. Hearing them talk about this show left me feeling disgusted and sad.
And then I "happened" upon this verse: Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. -2 Timothy 2:16
