Have You Ever Been Cheated On? Have You Ever Cheated or Thought About It?

OK, so one time I had an accident in my car. I was so upset. I had the car towed to the shop and had it repaired. They tried their best to make it like new again. They fixed the damage and repainted the area where the car had been hit. But no matter how they tried to match the paint to the original color, they couldn’t. So every day after that, when I would go to the car, I would always notice that the paint didn’t match. Every time I got into the car I would see that area where the paint was different and it would always remind me of the wreck. And even though the car had been repaired it never rode or drove the same again. 

Later, I found out that because the car had been damaged it was worth less than it was before the damage. I thought about this the other day when I was thinking about people who cheat in relationships. When someone cheats, or you have been cheated on, the relationship is never the same. Sure, you can stay together, work on it and repair it, but every time you take a hard look at your relationship you will be reminded of it. I know many of you reading this understand what I’m talking about. The relationship was once so amazing and new and now has lost its value. You have tried to move on but it’s difficult to trust again. I get it, I SO GET IT!

That’s why I wrote Temptation, my new movie that opens this Friday. I WANT YOU TO SEE IT THIS WEEKEND! In this movie I talk about being tempted, I talk about how to forgive, I talk about how to move on from it, and I also talk about how sometimes the decisions you make when you decide to cheat can stay with you for the rest of your life. This movie is powerful. I showed it to several hundred pastors, then had them over to my house to talk about it and the sentiment was the same. This movie has the power to save relationships. So please go see it this weekend if you can. Bring your husband or your wife, your girlfriends and boyfriends, single's ministries and church groups. The subject matter is too strong for kids but it’s perfect for young adults and older. I can’t wait for you to see it. TEMPTATION OPENS EVERYWHERE THIS FRIDAY.

    I have been the one to cheat and have been cheated on. I can say the message in this article is true, we do not count the people our cheating will and can hurt. It's not about YOU, when you get married and decide to have children, it is about your FAMILY! The one's you decide to cheat without have their own selfish agendas and too often you listen to their counsel (How d*** is that, LOL) to justify your actions. We have to remember the devil is in the details, we get shown what appears to be better, feel good, look good and seem right at the moment. On an emotional high no different than an addict looking for their next fix. We want a quick fix to our problems rather than WORKING at what is wrong and getting back to the place in our relationship that brought us to the alter. Honesty will save a lot of heart ache and pain for everyone in our lives, best solution be true to who you are. Show you love the other persons in your life by giving them an option to either except the real you or move on.

    I have been on both sides. The side that kills the soul is being the cheater. The cheater pays great consequences for the sin committed and it's not pretty. God in His awesome mercy extends His grace because you ask for forgiveness.

    I have been cheated on in every relationship I have ever been in. I don't hate men or down men as a result. I just seek to have the question answered in my mind as to why I have attracted the unfaithfuls into my world and heart? I look forward to watching this movie... hoping to find some answers and keep persevering to brighter days without giving up on true love.

    I've never cheated, never thought about it, but I've been cheated on & have had money stolen from me. How foolish of a person he was.

    Tyler, Unfortunately, individuals that are married or in a relationship that have created children do not take the time to think about the impact and devastation that cheating has on their children. In my experience with family, friends,& associates they typically believe that the individual whom they are married to is their "soul mate" only to discover that they were the imitation. My prayer is that the movie, Temptation encourages individuals to seek God's council about the individual they plan to spend the rest of their life with.

  • Thank you, Tyler car

    For making it a GOOD FRIDAY! Looking forward to seeing the movie, I am counting down with you. :)

    In my first marriage, I was cheated on. It was very hard to trust anyone for a long time. When I met my current husband, I put him through so many changes before we got married. He finally told me, I have to stop making him pay for someone else's transgressions. I finally had to stop and remember to judge each person and not the entire male population. Thank God he stuck by me and this coming June 15, we will be married 22 wonderful years.
