    What do you think of "Christmonger" for XRISTEMPOROS? Too
 unusual? (the Greek too is a neologism) Will people get it?

You're in good company.

Chapter XII. —Reception of Christians.

1. But let every one that cometh in the name of the Lord be received, and
afterward ye shall prove and know him; for ye shall have understanding right
and left. 2. If he who cometh is a wayfarer, assist him as far as ye are
able; but he shall not remain with you, except for two or three days, if need
be. 3. But if he willeth to abide with you, being an artisan, let him work
and eat; but if he hath no trade, 4. according to your understanding see to
it that, as a Christian, he shall not live with you idle. 5. But if he
willeth not to do, he is a Christ-monger. Watch that ye keep aloof from such.
