michaellopez:

literally in the whole entire bible, i took bible class for 10 years and i have read the bible almost every single day of my life

Hero:

Script/Verse?

michaellopez:

sometimes in the bible, it doesnt specify exactly, but u have to break down the verses to a better understanding of the scripture

Hero:

Which verses are you referring to? BTW, I asked this same question on Quora and tagged several experts on it. Even they have not responded yet. I challenge you to post your response there. https://www.quora.com/unanswered/Where-in-the-Bible-did-God-Christ-or-the-prophets-ever-refer-to-themselves-or-their-people-as-Christians

michaellopez:

1 Peter 4:16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

michaellopez:

those are some example of stuff that u have to break down

michaellopez:

in peter he is kind of saying that the ones how praise and glorify God in his name, he is calling them christians

michaellopez:

i am not really good at explaining my thoughts to people but those were my thoughts

Hero:

That's very good, but where did any of them say, "I am a Christian" or "We are Christians"? I see that I need to revise my question. I originally asked it as "Where in the Bible did God or Christ refer to their people as Christians?".

michaellopez:

ok sorry im researchin rn

Hero:

Because Christian is not the name God or Jesus gave their people.

Hero:

I'll give you the reference to the Genesis of the term Christian.

michaellopez:

well the word "Christian" is mentioned many times in the bible. and telling us what we should do as christians

Hero:

Acts 11:26. The people of Antioch (modern day Turkey) is where the disciples (prophets) were first called Chrstians. Actually Christian is only in the KJV bible three times.

michaellopez:

rlly?

michaellopez:

i feel like i have read it in the bible way more times than just 3

Hero:

Yes, really. Shocking but true.

Hero:

Did you read the links to the verses I posted?

Hero:

I should add Revelation 21:12 to that as well

Hero:

Romans 11:1 should be particularly interesting for you to explain. Why did Paul refer to himself as an Israelite rather than a Christian?

michaellopez:

i have to finish my school work i will read them later i dont wanna get behind

Hero:

Okay, I look forward to your response.
