The Newspaper Advert posted by Solid Rock Church stated, inter alia:
“Bring the blind, the lame, Aids and cancer victims
25 Walking sticks!
2 White canes from blind people!
Already left behind!”
It therefore implies that people with these conditions or ailments will be healed when visiting the church. These healing claims were unsubstantiated.
