China’s state-run churches are losing out to and sometimes joining forces with the vast network or underground churches in the communist nation. The Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association and the Three-Selves Patriotic Movement, the state run Catholic and Protestant church, were created to stem the growth of underground Christianity, but it has done little to slow down the explosive movement. Cai Laiyi, whose son was arrested for printing Bibles, said, “We are simple people, but we do know this: In the Bible, it says follow your leaders, but first follow your God.”
