Today I am talking about the gods that the Chinese worshiped the most in the past.  So the former gods of this Chinese Church became a powerful group with different powers and different forms from each other.  But all these gods are considered to be superstitious beliefs.

Now let’s look at these gods one by one

1.Dragon King.

King Dragon is known as Longwang.  The Dragon King is a fierce and powerful Chinese god who controls the ocean, the weather, dragons, and sea creatures.  King Dragon had four brothers. These four brothers controlled major waterways in each province of China at the time. Legend has it that King Dragon also controlled these four brothers.

This dragon king is a terrible warrior. He pretends to be a powerful dragon.  At times he acted very impulsively and dangerously.  Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person.  The cult of the Dragon King is popular among the coastal peoples of China because of the connection between the Dragon King and the sea.

2.Jade Emperor (Emperor Jade)

One of the main characters mentioned in Chinese mythology.  Emperor Jade is the supreme ruler of heaven and is considered to be the first emperor of China.  He was powerful. He was best known for his qualities of kindness, justice, and mercy.  As the New Year dawns, it is believed that the Jade Emperor will punish or reward the deeds done by the people during the previous year.

3.Xiwangmu

Xiwangmu is the most powerful Goddess in the Chinese Church. She is also known as the Mother of God of the West.  She has the unique power to control death and life.  She is also the wife of Emperor Jade. She also cares for women.  She plays a key role in giving human emperors the mandate of heaven.

4.Pangu

According to Chinese mythology, the pangu is an animal with horns and fur.  He is considered to be the first living thing to appear in the universe.  According to Chinese mythology, Pangu evolved from an egg to create the earth and the sky.  This animal is said to be closely related to the concept of yin and yang.
