Jail house Christianity and Jesus Name People

I mean as a whole, as a people regardless of what they are wearing, are Jesus name people different?

I think so, and will tell you why.

I think there is a difference in being baptize in Jesus name and filled with his spirit that being baptized in the titles.

I think there is an over coming power in the name of Jesus that you do not find in the titles.

The bible says 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

If you are in Christ you are a new creature, I think if you are NOT a new creature you are NOT in Christ.

Why am I saying this or bringing this up???(if anyone happens to read this far)

Because I have been doing an ongoing bible study at the Recovery House on our church property-

I am using the Celebrate Recovery Bible and I am really struggling with some the stuff that it believes as far as salvation.

It believes in repeating the sinners prayer (where did anyone ever do this in the book of acts?)

It also believes in eternal security--I am not teaching this!

I see the result of faulty wishy washy Jail teaching ok, and it does not produce over coming Christians.

At some point, if we are not living over coming lives we have to be able to look at our convertion or what we believe and see why we fail.

I do not think repeating the sinners prayer gives people the power to live over coming lives, I just don't.

But I do see people that have been baptized in Jesus name living over coming lives time and time again.

So what do you think, do you think there is a difference or not?
