INTRO to ALL LINCOLN PAGES:

    Abe Lincoln: He may be the Greatest Democratically-Elected Leader ever!

    More books have been written about Honest Abe than any other human being except Jesus Christ.

    More statues have been erected to President Abraham Lincoln than any other person who ever lived . . . also excepting Jesus Christ!

    Of thousands of Presidential Monuments in the USA dedicated to the 44 presidents, one-third are dedicated to Lincoln, one-third to the Founding Fathers, and one-third to all the rest.

    On a world-wide stage, the difference is even more striking. The statues in memory to Lincoln exceed all other USA presidents combined, several times over!

    In fact, the books and statues to Lincoln exceed the books & statures for the other top-10 American Presidents - combined:


"BUT WHY?"

    What made Abe Lincoln so great? There is a 'Secret'! There is a great secret! Abraham Lincoln was the original true, "Mr. Republican!" (and founder of the Republican Party) Lincoln was a man extremely dedicated to the following:

      [1] Beliefs,

      [2] Principles,

      [3] Ideals . . .

      RATHER THAN . . . just winning elections.

    Thus Lincoln failed in more quests than he succeeded, and lost more elections than he won, but when he finally won, he had Proven Principles upon which to lead and govern greatly!

Abraham Lincoln and Jesus Christ, Compared for Students, Disciples:

The Mystery of Lincoln's Attraction!

Jesus Christ!

    Of whom 'Ten-New-Books-Are-Written-About-Him-Every-Single-Day, with over 300-MILLION copies of His Words printed every year formally, in the western world . . . (and 'mere-mortals boast of "BEST SELLING BOOKS that reach a Million or 10 in a "Life-Time?"). . .

    . . . and there are 24,000-Plus new Christian Titles in the USA each year, not to mention the many "Top-Sellers" that attract new readers year after year, plus the "Classics" that have been selling for centuries . . .

    . . . from the Pilgrim's Bible (now 450 years old), the KJV Bible (400 years old in 2011) Pilgrims Progress (the largest selling book of all time after the Bible, Matthew Henry's Commentary and Adam Clarke's Commentaries (on every preachers desk in the free world!)

    . . . and this 24,000 new Christian Books is just from the USA alone!


ONLY GOD KNOWS!

    Only God knows just how many Books are written about Jesus, how many copies of His Words, how many books about ministry, Church leadership, Christianity, etc., are written in the 230 nations of the world, especially with the greatest Christian growth taking place in Hispanic-Latino Nations, China, Africa, and Southeast Asia.

    At least one such researcher places the figures at 100 new books about Jesus every day, 100,000 new titles per year, and a billion copies of the Words of Jesus EVERY YEAR, world-wide,


    Additionally, there has been 'A-New-Book-Written-About-Jesus-Every-Day . . . For-Over-A-THOUSAND-YEARS';

    with more statues erected to 'His Honor' in every land, than anyone can tell . . . because they are neither counted, nor known, for multitude.

    What does this have to do with Abraham Lincoln?

      BECAUSE, After Jesus Christ, however, there have been more books written about Abraham Lincoln than any other person who ever lived - 16,000 as of 2009:

      [Source Craig Symonds, Author of "Lincoln, His Admirers"].


    After Jesus, there have been more seekers, writers readers and admirers about Abraham Lincoln - the humble, countrified, never-attending-grade-school - much less college!


Lincoln, Humble Beginning:

    Abraham Lincoln, somewhat 'ill-bred' (crude, some declared!) born and raised in a 'three-sided-log cabin' (the fourth open to the elements - summer storms and winter blizzards - protected by a fire for the panthers and bears prowling at night;

    Yet Lincoln has been studied, written and read about more than any other human being:

      >> more than any King, Pharaoh, Caesar, or Czar;

      >> more than any Dictator, Emperor, President or Prime Minister;

      >> more than any Shah, Ayatollah, Imam or Generals of Armies;

      >> more than any Scientist, Philosopher, Musician, Sports or TV Star;

      >> In fact - according to some research - there have been more books about Lincoln than all other US Presidents: combined!

    Thus by so many searching-&-researching Lincoln’s Life, everything knowable should already be known:

      Correct?

      Incorrect!

    If you inquire about Abraham Lincoln's faith, you will find every position of faith possible thus attributed:

      Angry-Atheist, Super-Skeptic, Antagonistically-Agnostic, Doubting-Deist, Trusting-Theist, Effervescent-Evangelical, Fervently-Faithful . . .

      . . . and ALL POSITIONS have a dozen personal "quotes" to prove their particular point of view.


"What is Truth?” Pilate asked Jesus!

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: His Faith: Providence, Salvation, Prayer;

[1] Lincoln's Personal Testimony:

    Lincoln's "reply" to an Illinois clergyman when asked if he loved Jesus.

      "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 went to Gettysburg and saw the graves of thousands of our soldiers, I then and there consecrated myself to Christ.

      Yes, I do love Jesus."


    An early researcher declared:

      >> "This incident must have appeared in print immediately after Lincoln's death, for I find it quoted in memorial addresses of May, 1865."

      Some of the many sources in published print and letters are below:

    [SOURCE: William Eleazar Barton, "The Soul of Abraham Lincoln" (1920)].


        >> The earliest spoken reference I have found referencing Lincoln's quote: "I do love Jesus!" is in a sermon preached April 19, 1865;

      [SOURCE: Rev. W.W. Whitcomb, Baptist Church of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, April 19, 1865].


        The earliest print quote (referencing Lincoln's quote: "I do love Jesus!"), may be first found December 7, 1864.

      [SOURCE: Freeport Weekly Journal, December 7, 1864].[35]


        >> That this text (Lincoln's quote: "I do love Jesus!" appeared before Lincoln died is confirmed by a letter from Benjamin Talbot, December 21, 1864.

      [SOURCE: "Benjamin Talbot to Abraham Lincoln". December 21, 1864 ].

        >> It (referencing Lincoln's quote: "I do love Jesus!") was also published, both immediately and afterward, with much research;

      [SOURCE: The "Oshkosh Northwestern", April 21, 1865].

      [SOURCE: Researched and Reprinted: Paul F. Boller & John George (Oxford Univ. Press, 1989, p. 91)].


    >> Talbot's letter also points out that Lincoln would have been aware that this had been printed and quoted widely, and he was fine with this publishing, that he had been quoted saying "I do love Jesus!"

Abraham Lincoln: Is he the Greatest "Christian Leader" of all Time?

    Lincoln: The World Studies Him! Do You?

[2] Testimony of Lincoln by Spouse:

    Furthermore, after his tragic death it was widely printed (referencing Lincoln's quote: "I do love Jesus!") to give Americans a bit of closure on the subject, and was NEITHER rebuked by wife Mary Todd Lincoln, NOR sons Tad and Edward.

      When a noted atheist published that he "didn't believe it because he hadn't personally heard it, Mrs. Lincoln rebuked him sharply!

      He did not reply!


    Mrs. Lincoln further confirmed Lincoln's Faith and Christianity, his "daily, and even hourly prayer, etc.,"

    - and expressed her aghast at anyone daring to say Lincoln was not the most:


    Mrs. Lincoln wrote to Reverend Smith, the pastor in Springfield:

      "… As my husband was known to be the most loving and devoted husband & father we will allow these falsehoods a place where they deserve.

      We all — the whole world have been greatly shocked — at the fearful ideas — Herndon (a rabid atheist) — has advanced regarding Mr. Lincoln's religious views.

      You, who knew him so well & held so many conversations with him, as far back as twenty years since, know what they were.


    Mrs. Lincoln wrote to Reverend Smith, the pastor in Springfield:

      [Lincoln was] A man, who never took the name of the Maker in vain, who always read his Bible diligently,

      - who never failed to rely on God's promises & looked upon Him for protection, surely such a man as this, could not have been a disbeliever,

      or any other than what he was, a true Christian gentleman.


    Mrs. Lincoln wrote to Reverend Smith, the pastor in Springfield:

      No one, but such a man as Herndon could venture — to suggest such an idea.

      From the time of the death of our little Edward (1850), I believe my husband's heart was directed towards religion & as time passed on -

      - when Mr. Lincoln became elevated to Office - with the care of a great Nation, upon his shoulders - when devastating war was upon us then indeed to my knowledge -

      -did his great heart go up daily, hourly, in prayer to God - for his sustaining power.


    Mrs. Lincoln wrote to Reverend Smith, the pastor in Springfield:

      When too - the overwhelming sorrow came upon us, our beautiful bright angelic boy, Willie was called away from us, to his Heavenly Home, with God's chastising hand upon us - he turned his heart to Christ —"[3]

Testimony of Lincoln by Well-Known Minister:

    Following Lincoln's assassination, the well-known Presbyterian clergyman, the Rev. John H. Barrows, D.D., wrote and signed as follows: that Lincoln had become a Christian while in Washington.

    Dr. John H. Barrows, wrote:

      "In the anxious uncertainties of the great war, he (Abraham Lincoln) gradually rose to the heights where Jehovah became to him the sublimest of realities, the ruler of nations. (PROVIDENCE)

      When he wrote his immortal Proclamation, he revoked upon it not only 'the considerate judgment of mankind,' but the 'gracious favor of Almighty God.'(PROVIDENCE)

      When darkness gathered over the brave armies fighting for the nation's life, this strong man in the early morning knelt and wrestled in prayer . . .

      . . . with Him who holds the fate of empires.(PROVIDENCE)

      When the clouds lifted above the carnage of Gettysburg, he gave his heart to the Lord Jesus Christ.

      When he pronounced his matchless oration on the chief battlefield of the war, he gave expression to the resolve that 'this nation, under God, should have a New Birth (Born Again!) of freedom.'

      And when he wrote his last Inaugural Address, he gave it the lofty religious tone of an old Hebrew psalm.[32]

Testimony of Lincoln by Fellow Church Member:

    According to an affidavit signed under oath in Essex County, New Jersey, February 15, 1928, by Mrs. Sidney I. Lauck:

      "After Mr. Lincoln's death, Dr. Gurley (Lincoln's Pastor) told me that Mr. Lincoln had made all the necessary arrangements with him and the Session of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church,

      to be received into the membership of the said church, by confession of his faith in Christ,

      on the Easter Sunday following the Friday night when Mr. Lincoln was assassinated."

      Mrs. Lauck was, she said, about thirty years of age at the time of the assassination.[39]

Abraham Lincoln: Is he the Greatest "Christian Leader" of all Time?

    Lincoln: The World Studies Him! Do You?

Testimony of Lincoln by His Pastor:

    Rev. James Armstrong Reed, in preparing his 1873 lectures on the religion of Lincoln, asked a number of people if there was any evidence of Lincoln being an infidel in his later life.

    The reply from The Reverend Dr. Phineas Gurley, pastor of the same New York Avenue Presbyterian Church while Lincoln was an attender, to Reed's question was:

      "I do not believe a word of it.

      It could not have been true of him while here,

      for I have had frequent and intimate conversations with him on the subject of the Bible and the Christian religion, when he could have had no motive to deceive me,

      and I considered him sound not only on the truth of the Christian religion,

      but on all its fundamental doctrines and teaching."


    The Reverend Dr. Phineas Gurley continues:

      "And more than that: in the latter days of his chastened and weary life, after the death of his son Willie, and his visit to the battle-field of Gettysburg,

      he said, with tears in his eyes, that he had lost confidence in everything but God,

      and that he now believed his heart was changed, and that he loved the Saviour,

      and, if he was not deceived in himself, it was his intention soon to make a profession of religion.[37]

Abraham Lincoln: Is he the Greatest "Christian Leader" of all Time?

    Lincoln: The World Studies Him! Do You?

Newspaper Journalist, Lincoln Biographer, Verifies:

    Noah Brooks, a newspaperman, and a friend and biographer of Lincoln's, in reply to Reed's inquiry if there was any truth to claims that Lincoln was an infidel, stated:

      "In addition to what has appeared from my pen, I will state that I have had many conversations with Mr. Lincoln, which were more or less of a religious character,

      and while I never tried to draw anything like a statement of his views from him,

      yet he freely expressed himself to me as having 'a hope of blessed immortality through Jesus Christ!'"


    Noah Brooks, Newspaper Journalist, Lincoln Biographer, continues:

      "His (Abraham Lincoln's) views seemed to settle so naturally around that statement, that I considered no other necessary.

      His language seemed not that of an inquirer, but of one who had a prior settled belief in the fundamental doctrines of the Christian religion.

      Once or twice, speaking to me of the change which had come upon him he said, while he could not fix any definite time (before Gettysburg, which led to the deepest commitment), yet it was after he came here, and I am very positive that in his own mind he identified it with about the time of Willie's death.

      He said, too, that after he went to the White House he kept up the habit of daily prayer.

      Sometimes he said it was only ten minutes, but those ten minutes with God he had. There is no possible reason to suppose that Mr. Lincoln would ever deceive me as to his religious sentiments."


    Noah Brooks, Newspaper Journalist, Lincoln Biographer, continues:

      "In many conversations with him, I absorbed the firm conviction that Mr. Lincoln was at heart a Christian man, believed in the Savior,

      and was seriously considering the step which would formally connect him with the visible church on earth.

      Certainly, any suggestion as to Mr. Lincoln's skepticism or Infidelity, to me who knew him intimately from 1862 till the time of his death, is a monstrous fiction -- a shocking perversion.[38]

    At this time, I do not believe Jesus is the Saviour!

    I do believe Jesus is the Saviour and I know I have eternal Life!

    I do not believe it is possible to 'Know in this life' if one has Eternal Life.

    DOCTRINAL DISCLAIMER:

    Ministers-Best-Friend.com is an Absolute, Bible-Believing, Conservative Christian Ministry, seeking to serve the Ministers who serve the LORD JESUS. As such, we provides web-space to a number of Ministries, notably NewtonStein (a Creation-Science-Based Research Group), as well as AMERIPEDIA, BIBLIPEDIA, CHRISTIPEDIA, CATHOLIPEDIA, ISLAMIPEDIA, JUDAEOPEDIA, TEA-PARTY-UNITED, TALK-RADIO-REPUBLICANS, ETC., – seeking to be an outlet for many CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE VOICES who love the LORD JESUS CHRIST ABOVE ALL!

    Obviously, all phases of Christianity do not agree doctrinally or politically and sometimes even disagree on the actual facts concerning a particular leader, nation or situation, hence there are well over 10,000 denominations extant.

    We neither claim nor present ourselves as having perfect knowledge in all things. Thus views and articles posted on this website are those of their authors – who often insist their identities, denominational, and/or doctrinal persuasion be made known for various reasons – offered to you as wise people of God - Christian Patriots, whatever your nation - to discern for your own judgement and edification.

    In the NAME of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour:

    Be Blessed!
