Did I tick off the Christians?

It seems that my comment about Christian t-shirts might have ticked some people off. I linked to those particular t-shirts for a reason, to me they are taking a brand (in this case Coca Cola and T Mobile) and are rebranding in the name of Christ. To me it's not biblical -- it strikes me as materialistic, irreverent, and just makes Jesus one more product to market.

Maybe I'm wrong, maybe it's a good way to share Christ with the lost and dying world. But I just can't see how this is being in the world but not of it. It seems very worldly to me.

If you like to wear these t-shirts and you feel like I've insulted you, I want to offer an apology. I didn't mean to offend and I'm sorry if I did.
