    So Forbes has recently released its latest list of the 400 richest Americans.

    On first reading, very few of the 400 billionaires are Christians.

    It is also apparent that philanthropy is popular among the 400- but very few of them seem to support Christian charities.

    On what basis do you conclude this?

    I still fail to see why this is important. Also, how large of a sampling of these four hundred individuals did you take before you concluded that most were non-Christians?

    The list you linked to is over four years old.

    Many of them are engaged in "philanthropy" for tax deduction purposes. ;)

    Here's the 2008 list:

    This is not surprising. Jesus did say that it is difficult for the rich to get into heaven (Matthew 19:24).

    I don't know about the FORBES richest Americans, but when it comes to the richest Americans, I'm pretty sure that all 400 are Christian.

    It would probably be more accurate to say, "The Forbes 400 Americans with the Most Money". Whereas with me, I'm not talking about the most money--I'm talking about the richest.

    80% of the richest people, families in the u.s.A are nwo Zionist Jews some of these people do hide the fact that they are Jews.

    The very richest people in the u.s.A and the world will never be on any list in a main street mag or paper.
    Jesus called these people " the synagogue of Satan".

    Rev 2:9 [SIZE=+1]I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and [I know] the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are NOT, but [are] (Idumeans, Esau, Edom) the synagogue of Satan.


    The billion and trillion dollar families, rulers of this world, the evil mass-murdering elites are from Esau you know the guy who wanted to murder his brother Israel (Jacob).

    They now have the domination just like the Bible foretold in the first book. These are the people that God hates. Today they call themselves Jews but they do lie. They follow satan.

    Malachi.
    1:2 I have loved you, saith the "I AM". Yet ye say, Wherein hast Thou loved us? [Was] not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the "I AM": yet I loved Jacob,
    1:3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.
    1:4 Whereas Edom saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith the "I AM" Lord of hosts, They shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the "I AM" hath indignation for ever.

    To be fair, can you back this up with sources? They don't have to be mainstream media, as far as I'm concerned. Just sources with facts. If Forbes deserves consideration, then so do everyone else.
