The Solid Rock church in Johannesburg has been running ads claiming that "people are now getting healed of Aids or cancer, diabetics, broken bones, heart, back and many other problems are instantly healed in the name of Jesus Christ."
A complaint against unsubstantiated claims was brought to the ASA which has banned the ad until the church can produce irrefutable evidence to support those claims.
Solid Rock pastor Johan van Wyk said the advert was placed in a Johannesburg community newspaper after two people were carried into the church dying of Aids.
"They walked out of our church and walked back in the next week. The church presented sworn affidavits of healings, including a doctor's certificate in the case of a congregant who has been healed of Aids."
