Images of Hill Ministries Church members drinking alcohol during a service went viral on the internet. The church is based in Katlehong, Ekurhuleini, South Africa and is led by Pastor Uriah Maseko.
Maseko said he used Russian Bear vodka “to minister healing and deliverance to the sick and those who needed deliverance”.
He invited people with HIV to drink the vodka and be healed.
“God uses different methods to perform miracles. “Nothing, including healing, is impossible for God. “I’m not the one who heals. I was led by the spirit to use alcohol,” he said.
