1872 PUBLISHED WORKS DEFINE LINCOLN’S VIEWS ON GOD…

Ward H. Lamon was a close friend of Lincoln. He knew Lincoln in the days of his poverty and insignificance through the days of his power and presidency. In the biography he wrote about the 16th president, he shared Lincoln’s views on the Bible and Christianity. The following is what one of Lincoln’s close friends had to say about him:

“As to Mr. Lincoln’s religious views, he was, in short, an infidel – atheist. He did not believe that Jesus was God, nor the Son of God — was a fatalist, denied the freedom of the will. Mr. Lincoln told me a thousand times, that he did not believe the Bible was the revelation of God, as the Christian world contends.” William H. Herndon, Esq
