beginning. This article is long, but we encourage you to read it more than once, as there is much information to process.
In all seriousness... IF, after reading this article you have the misfortune of listening to or talking with Daniel Duval, we (Loren Grace and I) strongly advise that you come back and re-read this article to remind yourself of the truth!
I, Carolyn Hamlett, have left BRIDE Ministries, The Fire Place Church, and everything associated with Daniel Duval and his ministries.
There is a parting of the ways because I find their new doctrines to be New Age, heretical and against the teachings in the Word of God and DANGEROUS!
Once this was brought to Daniel Duval's attention, I discovered that he agreed with these heresies which are being pushed by some of the BRIDE Ministry and The Fire Place Church administrators.
BRIDE Ministries is now working in concert with some ministries that are teaching New Age and Luciferian doctrine disguised as Christianity. This is VERY dangerous! I will be coming out with information soon which will clarify the specifics.
What they are teaching is EXACTLY what I (as a child) was told by Satan's spiritual hierarchy would be the means that Lucifer (who is Satan) would use to take Christians away from the fundamental Bible teachings and into embracing Lucifer's theology. This is no small matter. This is a huge part of Satan's end time plan to take Christians by storm!
"I AM TRYING TO PROTECT BRIDE MINISTRIES. MOST OF ALL, I AM TRYING TO PROTECT SURVIVORS WHO ARE BEING PUT UNDER THE CARE OF TWO PEOPLE WHO CAN NOT BE TRUSTED TO TELL THE TRUTH.
WHY IS IT SO OFFENSIVE TO PEOPLE HERE IN BRIDE WHEN I CALL A LIAR A LIAR? THIS IS VERY SERIOUS MATTER!!!!! THE INFORMATION I AM PROVIDING AS WELL AS MY PERSONAL TESTIMONY COMING FROM MY CHARACTER SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO PROVE MY POINT.
DO I NEED TO DEFINE FOR YOU WHAT A LIAR IS? LOOK IT UP! A LIAR IS A PERSON WHO TELLS LIES. IT IS A PERSON WHO IS DECEITFUL. LOOK UP THE WORDS, DECEIT AND DECEITFUL. A LIAR IS A CON. LOOK UP THE WORD CON.
YOU PEOPLE MUST ASK YOURSELVES IF YOU REALLY CARE ABOUT SURVIVORS. IF SO...THEN WHY DO YOU PUT THEM IN THE CARE OF A LIAR? AM I BEING HARSH? IF THAT THOUGHT HAS EVEN ENTERED YOUR MIND, THEN YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS IN MINISTRY ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO VICTIMS OF SRA AND PROGRAMMING."
I do not take it lightly when deceit and flat out lies are used to victimize anyone!!! … Most especially when the deceitful liars happen to be the very people in charge of the well being and support of former victims of the above mentioned atrocities! (Daniel Duval is included in this).
Someday all will know that my leaving Daniel Duval and BRIDE Ministries and making the public announcement was out of an act of love for others. In fact, any honest person would have done the same if they discovered what I had discovered.
“Carolyn: I just sensed something strange has been going on there but I have not talked to me about what it was about. Would you mind telling me because I would believe you!”
“When God spanks his children, it exposes all their sinful behavior!
“I would hate to be Daniel, Darla, and Bride Ministries!”
So for those who would be angry or incensed at me (or anyone else) “naming names,” (meaning, Daniel Duval and BRIDE Ministries), thinking we should somehow not speak out against those “brothers and sisters in Christ,” I would say: please reevaluate who, exactly, is your brother or sister in Christ. Jesus Himself said, “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’” (Matthew 7:22-23)
The point is, not everyone who calls on Jesus is actually working for or following after Jesus, and I am not so much concerned with protecting the perpetrators of evil, as I am speaking out for and defending the victims of that evil in whatever way my Creator God has me to do.
So all that background is to say this: if there is abuse going on, it doesn't matter who is the abuser, it needs to be spoken out against! Physical abuse, sexual abuse, mental or emotional abuse – it should not be tolerated. And spiritual abuse falls under the same category. Spiritual abuse is usually so insidious, that most people don't recognize it, or simply pretend it doesn't exist. But when abuses occur under the name of GOD, and the twisting of scriptures are used to abuse, control, manipulate, and harm people, this is spiritual abuse.
Translation: Daniel is using survivors and our testimonies as stepping stones for him to achieve his career goals. I believe you can see the truth of this for yourself if you have even a basic understanding of how his “ministry” got started and who he has used to build his platform: survivors of SRA (satanic/sadistic ritual abuse) and TBMC (trauma-based mind control).
Personally speaking, I think that is a horrible and inappropriate attitude for a “counselor” to have towards his clients, and this didn’t inspire much trust towards him, as it caused more trauma to the attachment injuries I already have.
(As a side note to anyone reading this who is a survivor, especially someone with D.I.D. or related dissociative/trauma disorders:
if you want a counselor to help you work through your issues, please find someone who is understanding, knowledgeable, and is trained in helping clients work through trauma injuries and attachment injuries. And if you find yourself in a situation where your counselor is not sensitive and respectful of the injuries you have as a client, FIRE THEM. It’s okay. It’s allowed. You aren’t a bad person for setting boundaries. It IS okay for you to leave and you should be respected for your decision, not lied about and gossiped about behind your back.)
(I have copies of those emails in my journal, and may share them at a later date, if it’s appropriate, “X’ing” out the name of the client, of course, but it is CLEAR by the emails, that neither Rob Ruckert nor Preston Bailey were on board with the “angelic being” theology and that such a notion indicated delusion. The concern was also expressed by Rob Ruckert, that if that information were to be broadcast to Daniel’s podcast audience, it would hurt the credibility of BRIDE Ministries and the credibility of those of us who had done interviews with Daniel on his podcasts.)
(This type of “mesmerizing,” I’ve since learned, is something that is common with people when they try to come against Duval and the false doctrine he is teaching. Let me be blunt and say, it’s demons working through Daniel that are throwing the wool over people’s eyes, deceiving them and blinding them to the truth.)
Eventually, I quit counseling, once and for all, in early May of 2016.
“I am leaving this group and may need to leave BRIDE Ministries. I do not support the teachings that some of you are getting from your groups leaders. For anyone who would like to know my reasons, you are welcome to message me.
I love you all and will be keeping you in my prayers. God Bless!
My Emails To Dr. Preston Bailey
This is the email response I sent to Dr. Bailey:
From: Carolyn Hamlett
I have witnessed on this guy's FB page him teaching people the SAME techniques we used to teach people to astral travel and remote view!!! And...to manipulate dreams and implant thoughts.
Thanks so much for clearing this up.”
“These concerns me deeply what he is teaching.
There are no shortcuts in the kingdom of God.
Thanks so much!
I think it is silly for anyone to think that I would sever ties with Daniel Duval and leave BRIDE Ministries over a petty disagreement with one or two individuals. For those who believe that, they certainly don’t know me and for those who take Daniel Duval’s word for why he says I left BRIDE, they certainly don’t know Daniel Duval either.
An even older saying and promise applies: “For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.” ~ Jesus of Nazareth (Luke 8:17)
