According to an investigation by Sky News, at least six have died in Britain after being told by area evangelical churches that God had cured them of HIV through prayer and they could stop taking their medication.
Church pastors told victims that once they were “healed” they would be free to start a family. On their advice, one church member named Emmanuel fears he may have passed the disease on to his boyfriend. Emmanuel revealed to a Sky News reporter, "Yeah, I think I've passed it on. He got ill. Physically, he's lost some bit of weight. He's very small. I think he's worried... Yeah, I feel guilty, if I'm the one who passed it onto him I'm feeling guilty. Yeah, very much guilty."
Synagogue Church of All Nations issued the following crazy talk in response to the investigation;
"We are not the Healer - God is the Healer. Never a sickness God cannot heal. Never a disease God cannot cure. Never a burden God cannot bear. Never a problem God cannot solve.
"To His power, nothing is impossible. We have not done anything to bring about healing, deliverance or prosperity. If somebody is healed, it is God who heals.
"We must have a genuine desire if we come to God. We are not in position to question anybody's genuine desire. Only God knows if one comes with true desire. Only God can determine this.
"That is why, if anybody comes in the name of God, we pray for them. The outcome of the prayer will determine if they come genuinely or not."
