    Republican presidential contender Donald Trump has been looking for ways to reach out to evangelical voters before the GOP primaries. On Sunday, the businessman and his wife attended church services at the nondenominational First Christian Church, in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

    But when the Communion plates were passed, Trump mistook the silver plates for the offertory, digging out several bills from his pocket, according to the Associated Press. He, his wife and two staffers took Communion, the AP reports.

    “I thought it was for offering,” he told staffers with a laugh.

    Trump's religious beliefs are summed up in "I was raised as a Presbyterian." Nothing wrong with that but where is he now and what has he done for the Lord since then? His actions indicate he's exactly like the rich young ruler. His Lord is money.

    Well, it does represent quite an "offering" that Jesus made to us.
