Inspirational, Spiritual.......Christian?

A blogpost by Cari Johnson expresses concern about the public witness of faith by the Women of Faith speakers that recently appeared on Dr. Phil. I have not seen this episode but would like to.

Cari expressed about the program,
The show had NOTHING to do with spreading the Word, NOTHING to do with Christianity, and NOTHING to do with the Women of Faith. They barely even referred to the WOF as such. Mostly they called them inspirational speakers who speak at inspirational women’s conferences. It was completely a marketing ploy.
Inspirational is a "safe" word, sort of like spirituality. But both can exist without a robust or even casual mention of Christ.
