Controversial Church Told To Takedown Prayer Ad!
A church which advertised that a prayer session could heal health problems, including "incurable diseases" has been told to remove the advertisement. A complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority was made about a brochure from the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, which was circulated publicly and contained a timetable of healing sessions.
"For people who suffer with constant pain, deteriorating health, can't work due to illness, incurable disease, doctors don't know what's wrong, on pill recovering from injury, weight problems, sick children."The complainant, Mark Hanna, from the Society for Science Based Healthcare, said there was no evidence that any of these health issues could be alleviated through prayer.
