Ep 453 | FX Doc 'Secrets of Hillsong' Platforms Disgraced Pastor Carl Lentz, Alleges Abuse
The worship services at Hillsong NYC could have been confused for concerts complete with celebrity guests like Justin Bieber, Kevin Durant, and Vanessa Hudgens. The New York branch of the Australian church even had its own rock star, Pastor Carl Lentz. In 2020, however, like most rock stars, temptation had become too much for Lentz. The pastor was dismissed from the megachurch for “moral failures.” Lentz later admitted to extramarital affairs. Earlier this year, Lentz joined Mike Todd’s Tulsa megachurch, Transformation, in an advisory role. Now Lentz can be seen as part of the FX documentary “The Secrets of Hillsong,” which explores the church’s history of scandals. In a special edition of Tennessee Harmony, Anthony and Virgil Walker join Jason to discuss the show. What role does Hillsong’s music play in the church’s influence on culture? Was Carl Lentz treated fairly by the church? Does his past make him a more sympathetic figure?
