Pulpit indicates that we want to get the influence on others and govern them, perhaps we are too overbearing and have no understanding of other people’s right. The pulpit can express a strong need to express your thoughts and feelings.
see: you will manage to influence other people, you will represent the sublime point of view
sermonize: the truth will always be on your side
enter the pulpit: you will enjoy the respect and appreciation of other people
listen to the voice from the pulpit: you are looking for authority and someone who would tell you how you should manage your life
