One of my favourite organizations, Passion For Christ Movement, has launched a series of “ex” t-shirts, including “ex-fornicator,” “ex-atheist,” and my personal choice, “ex-masturbator.” Being marketed to the “Christian hip hop community,” the t-shirts’ purpose is noted:
When God wants to take His message of deliverance across the globe, there is NO stopping Him. Check out this feature of the EX Shirts on one of the fastest growing Christian Hip Hop magazines in the US: www.DaSouth.com. Also, hit up their new article, “Masturbation” It breaks down the lies behind masturbation, explains how this is actually a sin, and how we can be freed through Christ.
Commenter “Steve” was pretty pumped, misspelling “t” in in the midst of his excitement:
Tea Shirts .. =P

I’m soo psyched that I can rock some “EX” shirts over here in Jersey. I was patiently waiting to see how I can get my hands on one of these, now I get to choose all different types and colors … yea! hahaha.
Anyways, I pray that when we start buying and wearing these shirts that we don’t turn it into something without meaning. The message on these shirts are powerful and not a “fashion statement” but more of a “Godly Statement” for what He has delivered us from and He deserves the Glory!
I pray that we stay focused on the Lord and if wearing this shirt allows us to start a conversation that spreads the Gospel, then right on!
1 Corinthians 10:13 – “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
Grace & Peace,
Your Brother in Christ
Better yet is this hip-hop infused video, where people from the movement give you some “live, uncut, behind the scenes footage of The Movement.” You “get an inside look of what goes down after church.” In this episode, they discuss the new Ex-Masturbator shirt
Now I don’t mean to get all self-righteous and Bill Mahery… I don’t mean to make fun of the individuals in the video even if I inadvertently am. Its not their fault they’ve bought into this fucked up organization that promotes wet dreams and premature ejaculation. But seriously, whoever these people are that organize these movements and steal money from brainwashed Christians by selling lies in the form of flashy t-shirts, really need to be stopped.
