So... Here's a fun game to play I came up with while at the gym today. I was facing 21 screens (not including those in the mirrors) and it just seemed to come to me. Next time you are subjected to "wisdom and insight" from anonymous talking heads, look at the split screen as a before and after picture! It's hilarious!
But wait you say! It's goofy, they obviously are not the same people taken "before" and "after". True. That's the hilarious part.
On a more serious note, what they are saying is about as true as the game is real. Sure, there are hints of truth. Just like the two people above both have two eyes, a nose and a mouth. But as always... people on TV are trying to sell you something, and they will say what they need to say to sell it to you. Even if it means half truths, twisted facts and downright lies. (Warning: preachers and religious organizations will do the same thing sometimes).
So be wise. And have some fun at the same time. Look at the two pictures as a before and after, and then remember that what they are saying is likely just as bogus.
But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation. James 5.11
