Radio Free Asia (RFA) recently reported that the Chinese authorities officially arrested Priest Gu Yuese on February 6 – two days before the Chinese New Year. Gu was the priest at the largest Christian Church in the City of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. He was also the President of the Christian Association of Zhejiang Province. Since the Cultural Revolution, he has been the highest ranking Christian leader that the government officially appointed, who the government then arrested. Gu was strongly against the government’s demolition of the crosses that are on the churches in Zhejiang Province. He was later removed from the Christian Association. Gu asked his church members to continue following the guidance of the Bible, supporting the new priest, and praying for him instead of going against the government.
