Christian or Saint?

Act 11:26 and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church and taught a great many people. And in Antioch the disciples were first CALLED Christians.

Acts 26:
28 And Agrippa said to Paul, "In a short time would you persuade me to be a Christian?"
29 And Paul said, "Whether short or long, I would to God that not only you but also all who hear me t

his day might become SUCH AS I AM-- except for these chains."

1Peter 4:
14 If you are INSULTED for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.
1Pe 4:15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler.
16 Yet if anyone SUFFERS AS A CHRISTIAN, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name.

The only three references to the term "christian" in scripture. The church in Acts never used this word as a self-descriptive moniker.
Christianity is essentially just another religion among many, and was not preached by Christ, the apostles, or the saints of the day.
This is apparent throughout the history of man,and never more apparent than in this day of easy believism. Word of God speak!
