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.

    Hey Tyler, I just got back from seeing your movie temptation. It was such a great story, just as the play was I had seen here. I'm glad you are doing so well, making all of these wonderful stories that breathe life on the big screen. You have been a blessing to the entertainment industry and to countless others, and to people that you do know and people that you don't even know like me, lol. The movie really was ministry, it opens your eyes from an audience perspective of how people are tempted by the devil in so many ways. I was Judith, in real life. Luckily, my story didn't end the way hers did, but the beginning was very similar. This movie was cathartic for me to watch. It reminded me of how much I could have lost, the things I have took for granted, and how much I appreciate now what God has done and continues to do for me. I have been very blessed, I have people in my life I wouldn't trade for all the money in the world, but even now years after my Judith days, the devil still finds ways to try and end me. Like my pastor says, the devil never will cease to try to lie, steal, kill and destroy. Your movie explained for me and I'm sure many others how the devil will make sin look so tempting and good. He will make it look like you need it and make you justify reasons for even allowing yourself to indulge in it... and after you do you soon will realize how bad it was for you, and how it will eventually destroy you till your dead. The devil resents people becase we are made in the image of christ, so it is only natural for him to try to kill us. Again, I thank you for this movie and the message it brings, thank you for the live chats, everything you do for your fans, your mother I know couldn't be more proud. I pray you continue to be successful, always watch for the devil trying to do those four things in your life, and I pray you have more roots in the years to come to hold you up. I hope to be a root in your life with encouragement. I love you and will always support you, it doesn't matter if we don't know each other personally. Just know you have someone in Kansas City named Angel Johnson who does. Have a goodnight brother, continue with your ministries and thanks.

    Just want to say thank you man well done and Calvin played his b*** off. Just got in from seeing it my wifey took me so in turn taking some friends on Sunday good job.


    I don't even know where to start. Temptation on a scale of 1-10 I'm giving it a 20. It blew my mind how great the characters were. I didn't realize until the end that the counselor was Judith not not a story she was telling about her sister. It broke my heart when her husband found her in the tub all beat up. I knew Brandy's ex was who Judith was dating I got a funny feeling after he appeared in the drug store & she was scared to death. When Brandy told Judith's husband she was HIV positive & she called her ex's name I knew it was all over for Judith. You skills are like fine wine you keep getting better with time. I didn't want the movie to end. Kim was so funny she had the entire audience cracking up.

    Hello Mr. Perry, I appreciate you writing this and I can't wait to see Temption movie. I have a question for you please: Is it acceptable for a woman who claims faithfulness to God and her man to pose in the nude for public viewing if she is engaged and her fiance is of christian values?What about if she posed partially nude before she got deeply involved and commotted to him, but she still keeps it up on her website for all the world to see but it is in her view as art and she wants her fiance to think of it as art? Does it really mean that she isn't fully respecting the confines of their intimacy privacy and that she is not considering his desire to maingain some semblance of privacy or keeping something for just she Nd her man to have because the world is and has been viewing her precious jewels qithout discretion? Is the cheating and subtle inconsideration for being modest even through her beauty in plain sight? And how does any conviction of christian thinking or view of Jesus have any real role to play in this?

    My husband and I just saw Temptation, and ABSOLUTELY loved it. The story line was so incredible, detailed, and gave such a thorough description of how easily something that appears so innocent can overtake someone and literally ruin their life. Ah...Tyler you are so awesome, really. Your movies just get gooder and gooder (I don't think "gooder" is a real word), but that's the only way to describe the movie. My 15 year old daughter is going to see it with me next. The movie is a learning tool for the young and old. Thank YOU, again!

    Wow, this movie was great! I went to the 1st showing! I am speechless... Mr. TP you did it again. I love this movie and the message it entails. I only pray that married couples will consider the risk of having an affair and will be attentive to their spouses needs, wants, desires, dreams and encourage each other in pursuing their divine destiny. Your message is loud, clear and appreciated.

  • Stacey

    Wow!!! This movie is going to be a great eye opener and teacher to all couples! I know you are not touring right now, how can we get a chance to meet you? Much love, God bless!

    Looking forward to the movie and am sure I will enjoy it. Yes, I have been cheated on. The gentlemen assumed they could do better. But I wasn't married to any of them. So though the pain and betrayal was real, I cant imagine how devastating it would be in a marriage.

    I'm at the theater catching Temptation. I've been looking forward to it and now I am prepared for what lessons this work will teach, in classic Tyler Perry style.
