Over a million Red Guards gathered in Beijngs’s Tiananmen Square on Aug. 18, 1966. They were personally urged by Mao Zedong to take part in destroying China’s “Four Olds”. Although many pastors recanted their faith under heavy pressure that month, one who did not was elderly Shanghai pastor Zhu Guishen (竺规身). Zhu was a close friend of John Sung Shangjie, but he had joined liberals in signing the Three Self Manifesto in the 1950’s. However his firm evangelical convictions led to him being labeled a “rightist” later in that decade, and he suffered horribly after the Cultural Revolution started in 1966. He went to be with the Lord in 1978 at age 95. Pray for officials in Beijing and Shanghai to remember that the Lord pleads for the poor and takes the life of those who rob them. Proverbs 22:22-23
