4. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
Christian
   the name given by the Greeks or Romans, probably in reproach, to
   the followers of Jesus. It was first used at Antioch. The names
   by which the disciples were known among themselves were
   "brethren," "the faithful," "elect," "saints," "believers." But
   as distinguishing them from the multitude without, the name
   "Christian" came into use, and was universally accepted. This
   name occurs but three times in the New Testament (Acts 11:26;
   26:28; 1 Pet. 4:16).

inconsistent with a life of sin.

    I dreamed I stood upon a hill, and, lo!
    The godly multitudes walked to and fro
    Beneath, in Sabbath garments fitly clad,
    With pious mien, appropriately sad,
    While all the church bells made a solemn din --
    A fire-alarm to those who lived in sin.
    Then saw I gazing thoughtfully below,
    With tranquil face, upon that holy show
    A tall, spare figure in a robe of white,
    Whose eyes diffused a melancholy light.
    "God keep you, strange," I exclaimed.  "You are
    No doubt (your habit shows it) from afar;
    And yet I entertain the hope that you,
    Like these good people, are a Christian too."
    He raised his eyes and with a look so stern
    It made me with a thousand blushes burn
    Replied -- his manner with disdain was spiced:
    "What!  I a Christian?  No, indeed!  I'm Christ."
                                                                  G.J.
