- The church is selling the chemical to the congregants in the disguise of a Miracle Mineral Solution
- The church leaders claim learning how to use the chemical could help save lives
- The chemical contains a powerful bleach that is used both on textiles and in the industrial treatment of water
A United States religious group calling itself Genesis II Church of Health and Healing has taken to Facebook to promote a miracle cure meeting to be held at a hotel resort in Washington.
The church said it's going to use chlorine dioxide, in the disguise of Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), a dangerous industrial bleaching agent that they claim cures 95% of all world disease.
In a report by the Guardian, the organizer of the event, Tom Merry, publicised the event on his personal Facebook page by telling people that learning how to consume the bleach “could save your life, or the life of a loved one sent home to die.
The church is also asking for donations of KSh 45,000 (N160,200) per person, KSh 80,000 (N292k) for couples and KSh 40,000 (N146,000) for returning seminar students.
"Bishop Mark Grenon will be leading the seminar and introducing attendees to chlorine dioxide therapy, otherwise known as MMS; sharing the history of the discovery and development of MMS and its protocols by Jim Humble; and giving testimonies of health recovery wonders from around the world that are nothing short of miraculous," said the church in a Facebook post.

The chemical consists of chlorine dioxide, a powerful bleach that is used both on textiles and in the industrial treatment of water. It has been banned in several countries around the world for use as a medical treatment.
In the US, the chemical cannot be sold for human consumption after it was banned by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) following reports of many injuries to consumers of the agent.
The church's announcement came barely days after a pastor in South Africa staged a resurrection miracle that left many wondering the level of religious deceit in the current society.
In another bizarre incident, a pastor washed his congregants using Fanta and Coke beverages as a way of cleansing their sins.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that a Nigerian woman had shared a chilling story about her pastor husband on social media. The woman had claimed that she woke up in the middle of the night to find her husband's head with a snake's body.
