Two Christians who each have a large platform in America today are columnist Kirsten Powers and Pastor Carl Lentz of Hillsong NYC. Both of them are reaching thousands of people with their ideas and their convictions. And both of them seem to be filled with tremendous compassion and a deep measure of Christ's love.
Kirsten and Carl have something else in common. They are both popular speakers in the "secular pulpits" of America.
Kirsten is a columnist for The Daily Beast and USA Today, as well as a Fox News political analyst. Those are three pretty significant secular pulpits. It is obviously not the goal of those organizations to advance the Christian message, but they do allow Christians at times to write and speak from their pulpits.
