A newly created hashtag, #BibleStoriesForTrump, is trending with social media users mocking the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's lack of knowledge of the Bible. "Easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a loser to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. #BibleStoriesforTrump," reads one such tweet.

"Cain. Bad guy, ok. Terrible guy. But Abel's only a martyr because he was killed. I like martyrs who weren't killed," reads another tweet with #BibleStoriesForTrump. "Crooked Eve, stole Adams rib & then got them tossed out of paradise Nasty woman," writes yet another Twitter user.

Such tweets, using humor to criticize the billionaire businessman, are pouring in since Friday, when the hashtag was apparently created.

Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro claims he started the hashtag after a Trump supporter, conservative radio host Bill Mitchell, mashed up the Bible. "Trump is supposed to lose this election and Israel was supposed to drown in the Red Sea," Mitchell tweeted Thursday.

While the real estate mogul has called the Bible his "favorite book," he has also refused to quote his favorite verse.

The tweets with #BibleStoriesForTrump are alluding to Trump's statements on various issues related to the election.

"Joshua and the Israelites marched around Jericho for 7 Days and built a wall to keep out the Mexicans.
#BibleStoriesForTrump," reads a tweet. "I would have thrown out Eve after the whole apple thing, I have more ribs. #BibleStoriesForTrump," reads another one.

A recently leaked video showed Trump making lewd comments about women in 2005. While several Republican leaders, including Arizona Republican John McCain and Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, have rescinded their endorsements of Trump since the video surfaced, many evangelical and GOP leaders are still backing Trump while condemning some of his statement, just to prevent Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton from winning.

"On November 8th we will all have a choice to make. The two candidates have very different visions for the future of America," Franklin Graham, President and CEO of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote in a Facebook post recently. "The most important issue of this election is the Supreme Court. That impacts everything. There's no question, Trump and Clinton scandals might be news for the moment, but who they appoint to the Supreme Court will remake the fabric of our society for our children and our grandchildren, for generations to come," he concluded.

Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition and a member of Trump's religious advisory board, has also said he's still with the Republican candidate.

"As a Christian, I believe that the Bible teaches, to quote a verse from the New Testament, that we're to treat older women as our mothers and younger women as sisters in all purity…," Reed told NPR in a recent interview, adding that Trump has apologized. "I think given the stakes in this election and those and other critical issues, I just don't think an audiotape of an 11-year-old private conversation with an entertainment talk show host on a tour bus, for which the candidate has apologized profusely, is likely to rank high on the hierarchy of concerns of those faith-based voters."
