Just wanted to let you guys know that the final debate for this question is happening live at nowdebatethis.com.

You can see it live on August 19th at 7 P.M. EST.

And it's pretty cool, because apparently we get to vote on who we think should be the winner.

Well Washington was a mason (a high level one at that) and thus not a true christian, so that puts him of my list.

Hey guys,

If it was up to me, I think I would have to go with Washington!

I actually found a website that is doing this big discussion on this topic called www.nowdebatethis.com.

You should check it out! It's cool to see people's responses.

christlovesu2,

These two presidents were products of their times. General George Washington was a godly man that served his country in battle. Abraham Lincoln was also a man of God, who was self taught and still managed to pass the bar exam. Both were needed for their times, but we could never know who would do best, today. I would like to think that neither would be able to get into office, because their conservatism would be too offensive to the leftists and centrists that seem to be prevalent in both parties, today. Like the gospel is an offense to the world, so are godly men who strive to do what's right in the public square.

In Christ,
Billy.

This may sound really weird to you guys. But I'm just wondering who you guys think would be a better President if they were alive today? George Washington or Abraham Lincoln?

Let me know what you think... [Smile]
