The Need to Prioritize Repentance in Our Preaching - Kevin Swanson

What is a neglected doctrine in the preaching of American churches today?

Kevin Swanson explains in this video that a missionary recently explained to him that in Uganda, the emphasis of much of the preaching centered around repentance. What needs to happen in America is to prioritize the preaching of a message of repentance. 

Churches in America understand the grace of God, but they don’t understand the doctrine of repentance. The Great Commission calls us to preach a Gospel message that includes repentance. We have an imbalance when it comes to preaching a message of repentance. 

2 Timothy 4:2-4 (NKJV) - "Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables."
