Jefferson Bible (article)

He was a deist.

L.A. Times article about Jefferson and his faith

From Merriam-Webster:
: a movement or system of thought advocating natural religion, emphasizing morality, and in the 18th century denying the interference of the Creator with the laws of the universe

And an excerpt from the article:
Deists differed from traditional Christians by rejecting miraculous occurrences and prophecies and embracing the notion of a well-ordered universe created by a God who withdrew into detached transcendence.
