Abraham Lincoln just like the Abraham in the Bible was truly the father of his Country. To this day, it is not known exactly how he stood of the issue of Christianly. His father was a Baptist and during the time he was in office, he attended the New York Presbyterian church regularly but he never made a profession of faith.
Abraham knew the Bible very well and memorized major portions of it. He certainly lived by all it’s virtues. He always paid any debts back he had and took care of the poor including widows and small children. He could often be seen reading the Bible during the years he was in the White House, but he never prayed before a meal. Of course neither one of those things makes a person a Christian.
Lincoln did have plenty of time to ponder his eternal future with the early deaths of his two sons. It is really unclear what Lincoln really believed and no man will ever know. But it is not up to people to judge how he believed and whether he was a Baptist or a Presbyterian is really not the issue. His strong Biblical roots did affect how he ran the Country and for that we can be thankful.Related Article : Abraham Lincoln on the Debt Ceiling Crisis
