Something about Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

 This article is about Bill & Melinda Gates and their charitable work at their foundation: “All Lives Have Equal Value.” Bill Gates is an entrepreneur and businessman. With his late partner Paul Allen, he founded and built the world’s largest software business Microsoft through innovation and aggressive business tactics. After running a successful business for 39 years, in 2014, Bill Gates announced that he was stepping down as Microsoft's chairman to focus on charitable work at his foundation: “All Lives Have Equal Value.” The game changed from Microsoft to charitable works. In an interview on March 14th, 2014 with Rolling Stone press reporter, among the many questions, Bill Gates was asked: “You’re a technologist, but a lot of your work now with the foundation has a moral dimension. Has your thinking about the value of religion changed over the years?” Bill Gates said: “The moral systems of religion I think are super important. We have raised our kids in a religious way; they've gone to the Catholic Church that Melinda goes to and I participate in. I've been very lucky, and therefore I owe it to try and reduce the inequality in the world. And that's kind of a religious belief. I mean, it's at least a moral belief.” Another question Rolling Stone asked, “Do you believe in God?”

 Bill Gates said, “I agree with people like Richard Dawkins that mankind felt the need for creation myths. Before we really began to understand disease and the weather and things like that, we sought false explanations for them. Now science has filled in some of the realm – not all – that religion used to fill.” “But the mystery and the beauty of the world is overwhelmingly amazing, and there's no scientific explanation of how it came about,” said Gates. “To say that it was generated by random numbers that does seem, you know, sort of an uncharitable view [laughs].” “I think it makes sense to believe in God,” said Gates, “but exactly what decision in your life you make differently because of it, I don't know.”

 Bill & Melinda Gates are both Christians with their three children. Bill & Melinda Gates have done amazing things for many countries and people for many years, and continue to do extraordinary things for many countries and people. Bill Gates plans to help the developing world profit from its sewage. He also planned to reduce the inequality in the world. Bill and Melinda Gates have many things in common, for example: love for mankind, compassion, caring hearts, empathy, passion for excellence, and a desire to inspire people and make a difference in people lives. Most people wonder why Bill and Melinda gates are giving away all the money Bill made from Microsoft for over 30 years. It is not about being rich or wealthy, but one of the reasons is because of love for mankind. Another reason why they are doing this amazing thing is a message they are bringing to the people of the world that many people don’t know or understand. That message you will find in part 2 of this article within a week time. After reading part 2, sections 1 & 2 of this article you will be able to know and understand why Bill & Melinda Gates are doing what they are doing for mankind, what they believe in, what they stand for, and why they learned to lead people like Jesus - (Leading people with love, leading people with faithfulness, leading people with humility, and leading people with relationship). They’re showing obedient to the God’s commandment- to love one another, and if possible to live in peace and harmony. Bill and Melinda are creative, and innovative, and they help others improve leadership skills. They believe in God and love God by serving, inspiring, and by equipping others. One can’t love God, and hate other children of God, (your brothers and sisters), hurting them with evilness, it doesn’t work that way. That’s why Jesus said: “He who hates me hates my father as well.” John 15: 23.KJV.  Undoubtedly, based on this believe and learning to lead people like Jesus, Bill and Melinda Gates are able to serve, inspire, and equip others. Their understanding of: behavior, human relations, and performance also helped them to lead people and managed their business successfully. This are the type of people you can trust and willingly follow because of their honesty and love for mankind as I such to believe. Honest truth. Actions that back up the words and words that are congruent with the actions. People of integrity and honesty. People we can trust, Example: Bill and Melinda, that’s what we look for in our leaders and in all works of life to minimize injustice, poverty and inequality among people of the world If we can’t eliminate this unfairness among people of the world, as we are all the same human beings and should be treated equally. Thus, Bill & Melinda Gates foundation say: “All Lives Have Equal Value,” The truth.
