Are you curious...?
Abraham Lincoln consistently ranks up there with George Washington and Thomas Jefferson among the top three presidents of the US. Did you know that the young Lincoln was skeptical of religion? In the 1940s he believed in the Doctrine of Necessity, which says that the human mind is controlled by some higher power. In the 1850s he believed in "providence" in a general sort of way. He knew and respected the Bible, but he kept his own beliefs private and respected those of other people. By the 1860s, tested by the death of his son and the coming of war, he began to speak of dependence on an all-powerful God who shaped human events. Although he never professed Christian beliefs and attended church indifferently, he often used religious imagery and language to reach his audiences, who were mostly evangelical Protestants. It's a pretty safe bet that Lincoln was a spiritual man, but never a Christian.
