I'm thinking of developing a line of shirts--T and/or fleece--with either relevant slogans or bible verses on them.

In light of on-going current events, and onestarfisher's posts here, what should be the bent, slant or "intent" of these slogans or verses--direct, indirect, loving, judgemental, gospel??

Several I've thot of:

(slogan):  

Maybe in the OT homosexuals were called "dogs" for a reason?  (with a citation to the relevant bibel verse, which I haven't found yet).


(verse):  


"You are to distinguish between the holy and the common; and between the unclean and the clean..."  Leviticus 10:10


"You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination."  Leviticus 18:22




On the other side of the shirt, would be the business or company logo, which would be distinctive, and would also convey a distinct message...


I haven't decided yet which would go on which side, front or back.

"Here is a call for the endurance of the saint, those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus"  Rev. 14:12



I'm thinking the logo will be something distinctive, like the cross, and poignant, like the cross.  And instantly recognizable.      And representative of current events, and maybe like representative of the general theme implied by the following:  

"Indeed all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and impostors will go on from bad to worse."  II Tim. 3:12

Perhaps messages that would correct the misconceived image of true Christians as being "hypocrites". Followed by Godly actions of the person wearing it to show the message is not more misconceived hypocrisy.

You want to design a good shirt logo?

Forget anything which any group regardless of how we may disagree with a lifestyle may consider derogatory.

A great big cross on a contrasting background (which is clearly identifiable as Christian) says more that millions of words.  

You want the wearer to be a beacon not a target, right?  Grin

I'm thinking about that, JUdgeNOt.  Thank you.

In the meantime, I found that passage:  Deut 23: 17-8

"There shall be no cult prostitute of the daughters of Israel, neither shall there be a cult prostitute of the sons of Israel.  You shall not bring the hire of a harlot, or the wages of a dog, into the house of the Lord your God in payment for any vow; for both of these are an abomination to the Lord your God."  (Deut. 23:17-8)

This is in my RSV.  A footnote at the bottom, on the same page, translates "dog", as "sodomite".   I haven't checked the KJV yet.

The context is important.  It's a little long to quote on a garment.  Perhaps as just a reference.

Dude!  Now you're thinking!  (Or, as they say down home - you be thankin' now pardner!)

A big Cross on one side - then the book/chapter/verse on the other - make them look in the Word of God to find the Truth!  Grin

Oklahoma Howdy to Symphony,

I hope you don't mind 2 cents worth. I would suggest using the New Testament instead of the Old Testament to do away with the biggest cop-out for abominable behavior. Here's a few samples for you:

Romans 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Romans 1:24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Romans 1:26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Romans 1:27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Romans 1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Brother, do we need to get together and hire body guards for you?   Wink

An idea for a slogan:  REPENT AND SIN NO MORE!

Another one:  GAY WAS HAPPY - NOW IT'S SAD!

Another one (?):  STAND STRAIGHT FOR JESUS!

Another one:  GOD ACCEPTS NO ALTERNATIVES!

Love In Christ,
Tom

I have a feeling you have an anti-gay topic in mind; this doesn't quite fit, but I always thought it would look neat on a shirt...

The blade of a sword, which fades upward into the distance, and the hilt (pommel? handle?) is the top of a cross instead.

I notice they can make custom-made shirts for you.  So maybe that's the way to go.

I got the idea from onestarfisher, here.  S/he is using magic markers or paints from WalMarts, on her/his own shirts.  Lot cheaper that way.

But if you had one of the advertisers here do it, and bought from them, you'd b e helping support the website...
