Cancer 'cure' cult under fire.
Word of Life International holds nightly "miracle" meetings where people can be "saved".
But the Rev Michael Mair, a former moderator of Aberdeen Presbytery, said: "They are not saying it because it is true, but because it will gain them many desperate people who will possibly become part of the group, and who, I am sure, will be urged to contribute money."
Three years ago the cult bought an Aberdeen hotel for pounds 300,000 to turn into its world HQ.
In 1985, a Buckie hotelier claimed sect leader Jim Addison had brainwashed him into handing over pounds 23,000. The case was settled out of court.
