Oz teenage 'God Squad' claims to have cured ailing people

   Apr 15, 4:05 pm

Melbourne, Apr 15 (ANI): A group of Australian children, known as the Pentecostal group Culture Shifters, claim they have instantly healed hundreds of people using the miracle powers of Jesus on Queensland streets.

The group, which has children as young as 13, says it has healed people suffering from cancer and multiple sclerosis and is developing a large youth following.

Children from the group have been approaching people at random on the street, prompting alarm from parents and warnings from doctors for the sick to seek medical attention.

"Anyone who has a medical condition should always seek advice from their doctor,'' News.com.au quoted Dr Richard Kidd, President Australian Medical Association Queensland as saying.

Leaders, aged in their teens and 20s, claim they have also healed an entire football team's injuries, given hearing to a deaf woman and brought sight to a girl's blind eye.

Experts say faith healing has been on the decline globally but, in Queensland, it is attracting an increasing band of followers, who might be putting their lives at risk.

The 160-member Culture Shifters group from the Bridgeman Downs Christian Outreach Centre is led by Grant Shaw, 27, and his wife, Emma, 23.

The couple claim to have had a 95 percent success rate and to have healed more than 200 people in the past year.

Shaw denies that the street and church healings were used as a money grab and said no donations were collected from those who were healed. (ANI)
