    Well, I don't know how good of a witnessing tool they have been for me, but they sure do seperate believers from unbelievers. How? I get a "Praise Jesus" or "Wonderful shirt!" or "Ain't that the truth!" (regarding my "Christ the King is coming back" shirt) from Christians. And I get wierd disgusted looks from others. Same goes for my Jesus fish necklace. It is a good conversation starter though when I have time to talk to people.

    Sorry, but the only T-shirt I wear is below my dress shirts. I wouldn't be caught dead wearing only a T-shirt on the Street. ;)

    Yeah -- a lot of them are funny. People enjoy reading them.

    My kids wear them, mostly. I'm getting more conservative about my dress now I've passed the half century mark... :D Figured it was probably about time.

    My oldest son probably took the cake, though. When he presented the rough draft of his BS thesis to his class, he wore a "Pinky and the Brain" T-shirt -- and his advisor was laughing to tears.

    When he presented the final version to the committee, he got really brave and wore the one that said something like "Many of those who wait to make a decision until 11:30

    .....die at 11."

    He still graduated with honors. [​IMG]

    But then, that was in computer science. I doubt VERY much he could have done that in a biology or geology course.

    And he probably will be more conservative when he presents his MS thesis -- after all, now HE has passed the quarter century mark, and he is getting more conservative.

    MUCH too early! Where did I fail? :D

    I'm usually wearing either a Christian-message T-shirt or a hockey T-shirt. My co-workers stop me to read my shirts or ask about the latest NHL game. Today I'm wearing my Baptist Board shirt! :D

    When I'm out on errands or shopping, I get positive feedback. Even the atheist I work with has started asking questions about my faith. I figure this is something I can do for God - advertise! [​IMG]

    No, I don't wear T-shirts with any kind of message on them. T-shirts are for old fogeys to wear under their shirts. ;)

    Absolutely!!! I've ordered several through this site. Of course the messages are the gospel without compromise.

    I stopped wearing Christian T-Shirts after I started using Christian deodorant.
    It has been an effective witnessing tool, plus I feel fresh throughout the day.

    I don't wear Christians tees often, but I loved the one that said "don't fight naked, put on the full armor of God", and the one about body peircings saved my life.

    no, because many times I have heard non Christians say the shirts turn them off to Christ. Our actions should speak louder than our t-shirts.
