When comes to finances in hard economic times, more Americans would rather take advice from business mogul Donald Trump than from the Bible, the Religion News Service reports. A new study shows 50 percent of Americans would choose Donald Trump as their financial adviser -- despite his history of filing for bankruptcy -- while only 32 percent look to the Bible. The survey also found that one in 10 Americans ages 18 to 34 would be most inclined to take financial advice from Kim Kardashian. Eighty-six percent of Americans said they did not follow what the Bible says about managing money, despite more than 2,000 verses relating to money and possessions. Twenty-four percent of those think they would have more money if they followed the Bible's advice; however, 94 percent of Americans are unable to attribute a verse from Proverbs about the rewards of work to the Bible. "The Bible offers sound advice about managing money, avoiding debt and prospering in difficult times," said Lamar Vest, president of the American Bible Society.
