In the end of 2012, when the group members took to street, declaring the doomsday apocalypse prediction, Zhao Weishan still remained unknown to the public, even to many of its adherents. After the Zhaoyuan McDonald's Cult Murder happened on May 28, 2014 , the incident was widely reported by the media and drew great attention of the whole community. The cult’s leader Zhao Weishan became the focus and thus came into the eyes of the public. However, about whom he is and what he has done, little is known by the public. People get information mainly from the Internet or from limited information released by the government. If compare these materials, one will find much obsolete, false and contradictory information. The video The First Half Life of the Pretender God shoot by Kaiwind Web, provides detailed and objective information about the Church of the Almighty God. They have interviewed some relevant people and obtained the first hand materials, which are relatively accurate. And in later time, the author has been to Heilongjiang Province and Henan Province for the field study. We sort out our findings in the following parts, in order to present detailed information concerning Zhao Weishan’s life in China and the Church of Almighty God.
Zhao Weishan, formerly called Zhao Kun, was born on December 12, 1951, the son of Zhao Guangfa, a railway worker who also was a Communist. His mother Li Guirong was a worker of railway loading and unloading team. His birthplace Yagou Town, being famous for Northeast Sticky Bean Buns, was a quite small town located at the southeast Acheng District of Harbin, with only about ten minutes' walk around the town (many materials shows his birthplace is Yongyuan Town, 40 miles far away from Yagou Town. Indeed it is the place where he preached.) The most prominent building here was Yagou railway station. Near the station, there was a residential area of old bungalow for the railway workers. Several families lived together in a court, with messy wood fencing around. The houses were only about thirty to forty meters square.
