Thanks for that citation ---
[ the full title is:
Apostolic Teaching and Constitutions
The Lord‚s Teaching Through the Twelve Apostles to the Nations
Constitutions of the Holy Apostles
did you notice the footnote to "Christ-monger"?
„Christ-trafficker.š The abuse of Christian fellowship and hospitality
naturally followed the remarkable extension of Christianity. This
expressive term was coined to designate the class of idlers who would make
gain out of their professed Christianity. It occurs in the longer form of
the Ignatian Epistles (Trallians, vi.) and in literature of the fourth century.

I like that term " Christ-trafficker", too.
