RE: Lincoln's Christianity by Michael Burkhimer
Herndon and others claim that Abraham Lincoln was anti-thetical to Jesus, that Lincoln had written a small book he wanted to publish attacking Jesus Christ and scripture. But it was snatched away from Lincoln (by Sam Hill?) and thrown into a blazing firebox. Herndon that Lincoln remained a non Christian. Herndon that Lincoln only went through the motions of pretending piety to God as a shrewd political maneuver. Did Abraham Lincoln pray? Assuming he despised and rejected Jesus Christ, then the 'god' to whom Lincoln was praying, could not have been the God of Christianity, the God of Scripture, the God who all believed had carried the settlers to Jamestown and later on Plymouth Rock. Did Lincoln pray? It appears that Lincoln either mouthed public pieties and never prayed, or that Abraham Lincoln was praying to something, some other entity than the Christian God.
