Was Lincoln a Christian?

Once asked Mr. Lincoln whether he was a Christian, and he replied, “When I left Springfield, I asked the people to pray for me; I was not a Christian. When I buried my son, the severest trial of my life, I was not a Christian. But when I saw the graves of thousands of our soldiers, I then and there conscerated myself to Christ. I do love Jesus.”

From Words of Lincoln, by O.H. Oldroyd
