Red Chi Rho Brand was developed in 2017 to reflect the personal relationship between followers and their Master, Jesus Christ. Hence their particular style of design and their motto: Relationship over Religion, was born.
Created around the Christian symbol; Chi Rho (one of the earliest forms of Christogram) they incorporate Bible verses into all of their designs.
The Red Chi Rho team ensures that over 10% of all brand profits are used to help spread the love and relationship of Christ to others both within their physical communities as well as the vast nether regions of the interwebs. We here at CDH use all of our profits to fund our Christ-centric liberty based advocacy efforts. So it's kind of a win/win; if you agree with what we stand for, right?

This is straight from the design team and founders of the Red Chi Rho Brand:
"When creating our designs we keep these three things in mind; Jesus Christ, the Bible and the abilities He bestowed upon us through His life, death and resurrection to live life more abundantly. He gives us all equal opportunity to LIVE our lives; FREE. It is up to us, to embrace those liberties through a personal relationship with Him and live our lives as He directs."
“It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” ~ Galatians 5:1
Here is some of the history behind the branding:
The Chi Rho is one of the earliest forms of Christogram. It is formed by superimposing the first two letters of the Greek word ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ (Christos), Chi and Rho, in such manner that the vertical strokes of the Rho intersect the center of the Chi. The Chi Rho symbol was first used by the Christian Emperor Constantine (306-337 AD) after a dream.
A dream that he said ordered him to place a Heavenly Divine symbol upon the shields of his soldiers as part of a military standard, known as the Labarum.The Alpha and Omega was believed to be added later by Saint Ambrose to introduce people to the mysteries of the Christian faith. It is also said that it was added by the usurper Magnentius who killed Constans in 350 AD. Magnentius gained popularity because he was said to be more tolerant of both Christians and Pagans.
Live Free - Galatians 5:1 was added to reflect our beliefs that Jesus Christ was the Great Liberator. He came to fulfill the law and set us free from the bondage of it. The true "breaker of chains" presented all of us with; life, liberty and the individual pursuits of happiness our Constitutional Republic was built upon.
Our catchphrase; Relationship over Religion was created out of an individual desire to seek the personal relationship with our Master, Jesus; over having it "spoon-fed" to us with the possibility of it being hindered, distorted or controlled by flawed men. It's always better to go direct to the source, than have links in the chain. It's the chain that often binds and constricts.
RCRB designs are created by believers in the One True Way of Christ. They view the Chi Rho as a representation that depicts the Man He was and still is today; the Son of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The great Liberator and Redeemer.
It is a symbol that bears witness and testimony to all those willing to wear it in the manner it was intended. A conversation starter. An opportunity to explain to others, after they ask: What does that symbol represent?
As Paul spoke in Romans 1:9 "For God, whom I serve in my spirit in the preaching of the gospel of His Son, is my witness as to how unceasingly I make mention of you,"
"We encourage others to wear these shirts and designs with intention. We pray that others who need to find that personal relationship, inquire, simply because of what we are wearing. We pray that it gives you an opportunity to share your testimony and how that relationship has changed your life forever."
To all of us here on the RCRB team, it's never about religion and always about the relationship. We are flawed, He is Perfect."
RCRB endeavor's to source, print and ship all of their custom products from within the United States. Ensuring that they are helping, not hindering the restoration of the Made in America name. "Not every product will be made in the USA, but we diligently source our products, continuously searching for ways to bring back the true intent behind; Made in America. Restoration of small American businesses"
They also know their line of products and designs may not be for everyone, but they hope that eventually people will understand the true intentions behind those designs. "To further the true message of Christ and to build relationships."
"We only encourage those who share the same personal relationship with the One True Master to wear them with pride and conviction. We know that many of our designs may be too controversial for religious people, but we're not here to prop up and placate the Pharisees. We're here to encourage engagement and pray that others will ask; What does that mean?"
"not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit," Titus 3:5 Relationship over Religion
All of their designs are intended to be the ultimate statement; I SERVE THE ONE TRUE LIVING CHRIST.
"We know that man is not perfect, so mistakes may happen from time to time. If you have a problem with any product created and sold by RCRB, please let our retailers know, so we can make it right. We are all imperfect people, living in an imperfect world. If we are all seeking the same relationship with a perfect Master, then we all should have room in our hearts to work out our differences."
Y'all know who we are at Cold Dead Hands (if you don't you should by now); We wear our liberty and freedom with pride. Unashamed of the truths behind our rights and we don't care who doesn't agree with them. The truth is the truth, regardless of how it makes you feel. Thomas Jefferson relates the truth in a letter to his nephew Peter Carr;
"...follow truth, justice, and plain-dealing, and never fear their leading you out of the labyrinth in the easiest manner possible."
So wear these products with pride, although the creators do caution; "We encourage and advise: Know the scriptures we have incorporated into the design, because you will be asked. Unless you don't mind being embarrassed about not knowing what you're wearing."
We agree with their sentiment, and it’s exactly why we are selling and supporting this brand. We all need to be a living testament that is willing to serve our fellow man, defend those weaker than ourselves with a willingness to stop the usurpers of life and liberty while maintaining the ultimate resolve; to relinquish our Creator-bestowed rights to one Man only. The one who provided the pathway to true eternal liberty and freedom; The Son of God. The Risen Savior. The Great Liberator. The Man they called; Jesus of Nazareth.
