26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
-The name “Christian” literally means “The Christ-likes”. What a name. Notice what activities we see here that led to the giving of such a name. The disciples were following Jesus (hence the name disciples), they were assembling with the church, and they were teaching many people. All of that earned them the name, “The Christ-likes”. In a recent poll, 83% of Americans identified themselves as Christian and yet there are far less than 83% of Americans following Jesus, assembling at church and teaching others to do the same. What would the disciples at Antioch think if they saw what passes for a “Christian” today?
