Designs for those who are Christ-centric Constitutionalists with a true understanding of Jefferson's Wall of Separation with the freewill to worship as we choose. The Chi Rho is the symbol we chose to represent our Master, Jesus. Relationship over Religion was born to simply describe our personal relationship with Him and not the constructed religions of man.
Red Chi Rho Brand Apparel is a Christ based business that designs all of its graphics with three things in mind; Jesus Christ, the Bible and the ability He bestowed upon us through His life, death and resurrection to LIVE FREE: “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
The Chi Rho is one of the earliest forms of Christogram that is formed superimposing the first two letters Chi and Rho (pronounced Kie and Row) to form the Greek word ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ (Christos) in such manner that the vertical strokes of the Rho intersect the center of the Chi.
The Chi Rho symbol was used by the first Christian Emperor Constantine (306-337 AD) after a dream that ordered him to place a Heavenly Divine symbol on 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.
RCRB designs are created by believers of the One True Way of Christ and view the Chi Rho as a representation that depicts the Master/servant relationship they believe in, not the religion created by man. They endeavor to print and ship all of its custom products from within the United States. Every design comes with a specific scripture verse that relates to the design.
These clothes are not for everyone. We only encourage those who share a personal relationship with the One True Master to wear them, because you will be asked what that design stands for... Use that chance to sow some seeds and explain it to them, in the way they should hear it.
"But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect," ~ 1 Peter 3:15
They are designed to be the ultimate statement; I SERVE THE ONE TRUE LIVING CHRIST. Wear them with pride, but we encourage you to know the meaning behind the scriptures associated with the designs.
We all need to be a living testament and have the resolve to serve the man they call; Jesus of Nazareth.
