Bill Gates Is Back At The Top Of The World's Billionaires List!

The sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance
Q. 925. HOW many such sins are there?
A. Four.
Q. 930. What is the third?
A. Oppressing of the poor, which is a cruel, tyrannical, and unjust dealing with inferiors.
Q. 931. What other proof have you of that?
A. Out of Exod. xxii. 21. “Ye shall not hurt the widow and the fatherless: If you do hurt them, they will cry unto me, and I will hear them cry, and my fury shall take indignation, and I will strike thee with the sword.” And out of Isa. x. 1, 2. “Wo to them that make unjust laws, that they might oppress the poor in judgment, and do violence to the cause of the humble of my people.”
Q. 932. What is the fourth?
A. To defraud working men of their wages, which is to lessen, or detain it from them.
Q. 933. What proof have you of it?
A. Out of Eccl. xxxiv. 37. “He that sheddeth blood and he that defraudeth the hired man, are brethren,” and out of James v. 4. “Behold the hire of the workmen that have reaped your fields, which is defrauded by you, crieth, and their cry hath entered into the ears of the Lord God of Sabbath.”
This year's list of global billionaires has revealed that Mark Zuckerberg made the most money in the world in over the past 12 months. Forbes reports that the Facebook founder's net worth nearly doubled, going from 2013's estimate of $15.2billion to $28.5billion as a result of the social network's increasing share price. That still wasn't enough to earn him the top spot, however, as Microsoft founder Bill Gates came in at number one after slipping from the position four years ago. Gates held the title of 'richest man in the world' for 15 out of the past 20 years, but he was succeeded- briefly- by Mexican telecommunications magnate Carlos Slim Helu for the past four years. Gates, who now spends most of his time in philanthropy, earned his spot back as his net worth increased by $9billion to $76billion after Microsoft's stock had a promising year. That stock jump put him ahead of Mr Slim Helu who came in at $72billion. Zara owner Amancio Ortega held onto the third place spot for the second year in a row and was followed by investor Warren Buffett and Oracle head Larry Ellison came in fifth place.The rest of the top ten show the power of American family connections, as sixth and seventh place went to Charles and David Koch respectively. Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson came in eighth place, followed by Walmart heirs- with Christy Walton and family coming in ninth and her brother-in-law Jim Walton came in 10th. Their relatives Alice and S. Robson Walton also got their own spots on the list, meaning that the Walton family was responsible for four of the top 15 billionaires in the world. Christy Walton's high placement means that she holds onto the title as the richest woman in the world, but that doesn't mean that there wasn't a great deal of change for women on the list.
