Testimonials from Former Clients and Family or Friends of Former Clients of Dan Duval & “BRIDE Ministries” and Others

“When the watchman sees the enemy coming, he sounds the alarm to warn the people. Then if those who hear the alarm refuse to take action, it is their own fault if they die. They heard the alarm but ignored it, so the responsibility is theirs. If they had listened to the warning, they could have saved their lives. But if the watchman sees the enemy coming and doesn’t sound the alarm to warn the people, he is responsible for their captivity. They will die in their sins, but I will hold the watchman responsible for their deaths.”

“Now the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will abandon the faith to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, influenced by the hypocrisy of liars, whose consciences are seared with a hot iron.

“By pointing out these things to the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, nourished by the words of the faith and sound instruction you have followed.”

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.”

“Now I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and obstacles that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Turn away from them. For such as these are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.”

Matthew 7:15 (BSB)
“Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.”

“I am astonished how quickly you are deserting the One who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel — which is not even a gospel. Evidently some people are troubling you and trying to distort the gospel of Christ.

But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be under a divine curse! As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you embraced, let him be under a divine curse!”

We, Carolyn and Loren, have already shared our own testimonies concerning Dan Duval and Bride Ministries in several ways: in an initial blog article, in video conversations that we recorded and shared, and in a book that we wrote to explain some of the doctrines of demons that Duval and others are involved in. Furthermore, we continue to share things here and there on the blog articles that we write.

However, there are other people who have testimonies of their own that they have shared with us, and we thank them very much for sharing. 

So what follows are these testimonies of others that they have publicly shared on various social media sites, as well as the testimonies of some who have emailed us, telling us and others of their experiences with Bride Ministries, as well as with other false doctrines and ministries.

Where necessary, the content has been edited for length, clarity, and for basic grammar and punctuation. The longer testimonials have been given their own page, so follow the link to read the complete testimonial.

Testimonies from Former Clients and Family or Friends of Former Clients of “BRIDE Ministries”

MM’s Testimony
I was led to ONE session with Dan Duval. I had actually just gotten on the Bride Ministries webpage to see if anyone was available for a session, and ‘ironically’, he had an opening. I won’t go into the ‘session’, but that man should be careful or he will have a lawsuit on his hands someday from someone. One ‘take-away’ was concerning his whole ‘fake-Jesus programming’ thing: if I didn’t TRULY know my Lord and Savior for more than 50 years, what he did with me in that session could have driven me to suicide or severe mental illness. As it was, I did have one very bad day after that session but then the Lord sorted it out for me and showed me what Daniel had done. It seemed as though the Lord just wanted me ‘educated’ in the wiles of ‘you-know-who’, who prowls around as a roaring lion.

DT’s Testimony
I became aware of your departure from Bride Ministries just recently because of a video from The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction about the occult teachings of the Spirit Man from Arthur Burke. 
I have been a patient of Ruthie Andrews*** for the past couple of months, and recently she told me about this teaching. It sounded strange to me, but I agreed to check out some of Arthur Burk’s videos. I thought them strange, but viewed several, until he addressed my “spirit” directly. I became hysterical and started crying uncontrollably. I got physically ill with a raging migraine and started vomiting. It was a very violent reaction and I had never experienced that before, so I quit watching his videos and told Ruthie about it. I don’t really recall her explanation other than my concerns were somewhat dismissed. 
Since starting with Bride Ministries I have had 2 huge attacks on my finances. Since I live on disability this was devastating. I also had an attack on my health and felt like I was being oppressed spiritually. I had to cancel the last session with her because of illness. So when I saw that video it all started to make sense. I wish I had known you had parted company with them last year because I would have never started sessions with them. But now I do know and have written to cancel my future sessions with her. Thank you for telling the truth. I don’t know if I will ever trust another ministry, especially a counseling ministry again. Keep telling the truth and exposing the darkness that surrounds us. 
*** Our Note: as of March 2018, Ruthie Andrews is a “DID coach” with Bride Ministries.

Rob’s Testimony
My wife, Loren Grace, and I had been together for about 10 years before counseling sessions with Dan Duval began in 2014. I was well aware of some of her past abuses and the ongoing problems with her mother. She did have bouts of severe depression and showed signs of programming, especially when dealing with her mother, but I thought that she was able to function somewhat normally for the most part. She had gone to other counselors before to try to deal with the deep rooted issues she had, but never really got the results she wanted. Her depression continued and she was still having nightmares. 
In 2013, she started journaling and started to realize that her problems were rooted in ritual abuse and dissociation. So she started seeking out counseling in our area to get help with this, but she couldn’t find anyone that she was comfortable with. 
She was given the name of Dan Duval by some friends on Facebook. My wife spoke to Dan Duval first in an initial conversation, but she wasn’t sure she wanted to work with him. After several more months of trying to find a counselor, she decided to give Dan a try. This was in late spring of 2014. I spoke to him over the phone and I agreed to support the counseling and coaching process. I was told that this process would get worse before it got better, but I thought I was prepared. I thought that the object of these sessions was to listen to her and help her work through the many issues from past abuses as well as DID and SRA. I thought the end result would be a gradual integration of all the parts of her and for her to emerge from this process as a whole person. 
As time passed, I noticed that my wife was getting much worse, but… CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

RS’s Testimony:
Some years ago, I heard Carolyn Hamlett on Dan Duval’s podcast. Since I had been having meetings in another realm with the so-called “Ascended Masters,” I knew she was telling the truth with what she was saying, because you can’t lie about that to somebody who’s done it themselves. I only met the “Ascended Masters” face-to-face starting when I was 30 years old; however, they had always been in my life up until that point, and just as other people who have been heavily involved with them, I was having some trouble with a dissociative disorder. 
I contacted Carolyn after listening to her on Duval’s podcast, and after many hours of talking on the phone with her, we became friends. I knew in my heart she was genuine and I was very happy to have her as a friend. 
I knew she had been talking to Dan Duval, and I didn’t know of anybody else who might could have helped me with what I was dealing with. And so, knowing that Carolyn trusted him at that time, I had a couple of counseling sessions with him myself. Money exchanged hands, and therefore, whether he had a counseling degree or not, there was a client/patient confidentiality that… CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

Robbie’s Testimony:
I was a part of Daniel Duval’s “Bride Ministries” & Fire Place Church (his internet church), up until November of 2016. I listened to Duval’s weekly podcasts and to his weekly online church, and I was also a part of online social media groups that were led by Bride Ministry leaders and the Fire Place Church coordinator at that time. I was good friends with some who were involved with that “ministry,” including Carolyn before she left, and I was well acquainted with others who were being “counseled” by Dan Duval and those at Bride Ministries. I wasn’t acquainted with Loren, but I knew of her. 
During the time that I was involved with that group, the fruit of the unholy spirits that they were operating out of became very clear to me. From top-to-bottom, they were involved in evil things — in “Christian witchcraft” — and were teaching Luciferian doctrine and practicing occult activities. I was a part of their “Spiritual Warfare” Facebook group, and I saw these things first-hand. They were pushing a lot of the “Praying Medic’s” (Dave Hayes) books, such as “Hearing the Voice of God Made Simple,” “Traveling in the Spirit Made Simple,” and “Seeing in the Spirit Made Simple.” They were also pushing the teachings of Steve Harmon, Ian Clayton, and Arthur Burk. Rather than using the Bible…  CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

Pam’s Testimony: Why Pam Left Bride Ministries

What follows is the testimony of Pam, former follower of Bride Ministries. We thank her for her courage and commitment to speak the truth in love. ❤

I first began listening to Daniel Duval through his interviews with Carolyn. I was very encouraged and grateful for Carolyn’s bravery to stand-up and speak the truth in love and expose the evil she had experienced. The ultimate message in those interviews was to trust Jesus with our whole hearts and also to test the spirits. I believed and still do that this was wise council, especially now more than ever, for He alone is worthy of all our trust and is our supreme authority.
Later, I saw a Facebook post Daniel Duval made, announcing a discipleship training course he was making available for free. I was a little hesitant, but decided this may be a great way to learn about discipling others. I greatly longed to know my Savior on a much deeper level!

Wow! I had no idea the teachings I would receive were far different from what I had always believed the Word of God taught. Just as the serpent twisted Scripture in the garden of Eden, and just as the Pharisees twisted Scripture in the time that Jesus walked this earth, it is still going on today. I witnessed this first-hand through the discipleship training courses, as Scripture was constantly being twisted and manipulated. This twisting of Scripture started off gradually, but by the time the last course was being taught, the false doctrine was becoming more obvious to me. Although, it wasn’t until several months after I finally left Bride Ministries and went through a spiritual detox that I fully recognized how nefarious and demonic Daniel’s teachings really were.

Email Testimonies from Others About Various Cults, Cult Leaders, Witchcraft, and False Doctrines

From Pamela:
I got sucked into Dan Duval’s podcasts, and felt enthralled and enchanted with it. After some time, however, I became terribly confused. I felt like Duval was teaching concepts I was completely unaware of, and it felt like the teaching or indoctrination was focusing on the intricacies and expanses and rituals of the occult, rather than exposing the occult and leading to Scripture. The teachings became progressively uncomfortable and disorienting. Duval made God confusing and complicated! The Bible deserves study, faith and prayer, but faith is actually simple. You don’t have to learn and memorize complicated prayers and procedures. You don’t have to know about the names of demonic principalities and go to war in the spirit against them. You don’t have to pray for every part of your body, spirit, soul and mind. If you forget to pray for protection on your spleen it might get attacked? Yikes, that’s a lot of stress. God isn’t stress, He is peace and love. It is all about simple relationship with God. Duval wants you to need his superb knowledge, experience and power. Umm…, no. God wants us to be humble. If you start feeling confused, you can pray straight to Holy Father through Jesus. Easy. 
Carolyn always pointed to Jesus. Always. Carolyn seems humble. She seems so genuine with a true heart for God. Any time Carolyn was speaking on Duval’s podcasts, I tuned in, but I’m so happy she left Bride Ministries. 
I want to say thank you to Loren and Carolyn for doing the right thing and exposing what was revealed as deception within Bride Ministries. You have made it easy for me to turn away from that supposed ministry, as I was heading toward becoming involved.

From CK:
I just wanted to thank you for so openly and thoroughly explaining your break from Bride Ministries. I began to be involved there a few months ago, but felt constant hesitancy about their practices of ‘seeing in the spirit’, especially by survivors who said they cannot read the Bible because their programming blocks them from doing so. I am unsure how someone who does not read God’s Word could be such a detailed messenger of all that is happening in the spirit realm. God’s Word must be the foundation for all discernment. Thank you for pointing people back to God’s Word, rather than quick fixes that excite the mind and stroke the ego.

From JS:
Thank you so much for your warning on Bride Ministry and Dan Duval. I have been listening to his programs for awhile now but have noticed that his guests and his teachings have been sounding not quite right more and more. I wasn’t sure if it was just me not understanding or not being smart enough or if it was off mark. And you are so right in pointing out what was wrong. I can see it so clearly now. But you are also so right that I should have seen it myself if I was reading my bible more and not just listening to “preachers”. 
Bless you for having the strength and honesty to come out and tell the truth about what you know so that others can not fall into the pit if they have eyes to see.

From PS:
I am an acquaintance of Daniel Duval. We have worked together at a conference and spent some personal time together sharing our views. I sought out Daniel for spiritual warfare guidance. 
During one of our conferences, there was a young girl who had darkness around her. Daniel prayed over her. Well, prayed at her. It did seem odd at the time. He was praying/commanding against curses, hexes, spells, etc. It wasn’t Holy Spirit filled prayer but something he obviously repeats over and over. But what was odd was that he was “damning/sending demons to the abyss”. I read in scripture that it is not our place to do such things. So I found that odd that he would be doing that. 
When I visited his place a couple years ago, he was showing me all these esoteric texts on his computer. Saying he prays for protection before he reads them. He was very much into doctrine of demon ancient texts that he downloaded from the web. Said he was trying to find out how the enemy works. He emailed me one, saying it was an ancient text and to not read it without prayer because it was very dangerous. 
Seems like he found out secrets of heaven, information that demons use, and tries to incorporate it into his ministry. Very dangerous. But it does line up with what you’re saying. 
And the other thing is: he was a very proud person. This is not only my opinion, but also the opinion of my friend who spent time with him as well. You know what the Bible says: God gives grace to the humble but resists the proud. So how can he be doing work in God’s name and healing while being so proud?

From PG:
The local church in our small town is associated with the Elim denomination and is a big supporter of XP Ministries, Patricia King. We were not prepared for the total acceptance of her occult “Christian” practices. We now find some members of our daughter-in-law’s family being persuaded by visions of heaven and angels, appearance of gems and goldust, claims of being “extremely special”, executing words of knowledge on people, etc. Some of these folks are so deceived that they refuse to listen to anything they perceive as disagreement citing that “we do not expect YOU to understand,” “we are special,” and “we do not live in fear.” We’re really concerned about the welfare of our close and extended family and are constantly in prayer that God will open their eyes.

From CB:
I found out only yesterday about you [Carolyn and Loren], and it was through God’s intervention and guidance. Everything you say is a confirmation to my research. 
The first and last project I was involved with in Arthur Burk’s ministry ended last week. I was a part of a team of researchers who had to study a certain part of the brain and its correlation with autism. The reason for this group is that Arthur doesn’t have time to do this research and he asked for volunteers. So he uses a lot of tools and experiments for so-called good purposes (cleansing the land , healing sicknesses, deliverance, etc). 
He says on his website that not only do people have redemptive gifts, but every country and city on the earth has a redemptive gift, too. I don’t know the biblical backup for this teaching. It just seems it’s a too-stretched application of 1 Corinthians 12. 
One of his last projects was in the city of Innsbruck, Austria, where he has a collaborator. He performed some cleansing rituals there last week, and expected to see some transformations in that city. A recent earthquake just occurred there and they think it’s a sign from God. If you ask me, I don’t think so, because earthquakes increase everywhere. They also have a teaching about cleansing lay lines. All these you can read yourself from their Facebook page. 
I also bought Ian Clayton’s books and read them. I was involved also with Mike Parson’s ministry for a month only. I went to his website to test it, but a lot of things didn’t seem right, so I quit. In fact, as you said, we can see if a ministry is good or bad by the type of guys that they are joining with. Indeed, this one was one of the clues that made me realize that they are deceptive. 
All I can say is that all my involvement with these ministries and teachings departed me from God and the Bible. 
When I found out about your book and teachings I FELT FREE and my love for God and the Bible returned.

From SD:
I am a part of a church that does a lot of good for the community. The minister actually helps people overcome addictions and horrible life styles through their discipling program. I have studied the Word, and the minister’s teachings line up with the Bible. The minister’s son and his wife have been very good friends of mine. Last December, the minister’s son came to help keep the peace when I was giving things back to my soon-to-be ex. At that time, my ex and his parents cursed the minister’s son. He was only in his twenties, and he passed away from an undiagnosed heart malfunction 6 days later. I believe this was a spiritual assassination. The fallout from the community has been felt in an adverse way. The church continues to grow and help many, but the family and his widow have been so hurt. I know God is greater, and allowed this, and will bring good out of this, but this was truly a good person that loved the Lord dearly.

From JQ:
I just came out of a prayer line that was using christian witchcraft to pray for witches to die in the name of Jesus. I had no idea the minister of the prayer line would pray prayers like that.

Testimonies on Social Media Forums About Various Cults, Cult Leaders, Witchcraft, and False Doctrines

“Bride Ministries is a dangerous “ministry”, and can be worse for those coming to them for “counseling”. As a professional, we always want to assess the clients for safety of self and the safety of others, but with Bride “Ministries”, it has been my observation that those who have left are endorsing suicidal ideations, homicidal ideations, and complete break downs. They have been accused of being dishonest, and their experiences are not acknowledged in truth. Another observation is that in looking back, I have not seen many of the dissociates that have been in for “help,” improving or receiving healing. It has been painful to see and hear of the re-traumatization of these precious people. God is always talking to us and I pray that these reports will serve as a huge neon red flag to others seeking help to keep going and find a safe place where all of the staff are licensed and experienced in this discipline.” CV

Loren Grace’s response to this individual:

“Thank you for your words, C****. You were one of the ones that has seen this going on from the very beginning, from the inside. Many people only see the facade; not many have a behind-the-scenes look at what is REALLY going on. It is my hope that by exposing this, if not repentance and reconciliation to GOD, at least people will be warned to stay away or get away. ESPECIALLY survivors, and that is where my hear really is: for survivors of all sorts of abuse, whether psychological, sexual, physical, and/or spiritual. Unfortunately, I know all too well that broken people are more susceptible to being fooled and retraumatized. I don’t wish the hell I have been through on ANYONE.” Loren

“I turned away from church for a long time because of the abuses I suffered at the hands of “ministers” who weren’t really servants of God. More recently, five years ago I was delivered from actual witchcraft  — I got led so astray that I got involved in tarot cards and the like and was even doing it professionally, to the point where I became possessed. I knew something was wrong so I cried out to God and he told me it was witchcraft. I repented and I’ve never looked back.” (Comment on our blog by an anonymous person)

“As a new Christian, I took the “In Christ” class [with Bride Ministries] and found it very confusing. Also, Ian Clayton and his books and methods were being “highly recommended” from day one. I found it a bit strange (should’ve been my first clue), but I didn’t really know what God’s Word said about it, nor did I take the time to study it myself. If anything, I have learned I need to get into the Word and seek His Truth for myself! THANK YOU Loren & Carolyn for speaking the TRUTH!” ~ KP

~ ~ ~

“Our Lord delivered me from a 10-year journey into new age, spiritualism, transmediumship, and esoteric madness! It’s amazing how once you open the door, those pesky demons come in with a flood of deception that appeals to one’s pride and ego in the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment. I have also opened doors in my Christian walk over the past 12 years, and I can only blame myself for seeking that which you warn of: spiritual experiences with spiritual beings, fresh revelation rather than what is already given in the Scriptures that is interpreted correctly and in context, and seeking other things aside from our Heavenly Father. I often wonder if I still need some deliverance, and have realized that the answer is yes! Deliverance from myself and sin! I also see how it is our Lord’s faithfulness that has pulled me from the prosperity, sign and wonders, and “charis-manic” false gospels!” ~ DR

~ ~ ~

“I found Carolyn when she was with [Dan Duval]. I read your blog about his “teachings”. Thank God for the Holy Spirit. I felt like a lot of his teachings became New Age and he seemed impressed with himself. I realized that a lot of these teachings are New Age mixed with Christianity.” PD

~ ~ ~

“I have listened to many of [Dan Duval’s] podcasts for the last couple of years. I became unsettled in my spirit with the talk of the “spirit man.” As intriguing as it sounds, it hardly had biblical context. I’ve had lots of checks in my spirit: the praying medic, Jeff Janson, battling with your “spirit man”… it’s seductive and intriguing, but as I felt drawn in, I quit listening.” SM

Note: these next testimonies are public remarks made by people commenting on two videos that “the Truth is stranger than fiction” produced, exposing some of Daniel Duval’s unbiblical teachings. The links where we found these comments are: and

“Thank you for putting the lies and deception up front! Many people are under Dan Duval’s spells, and are used to lift him up as if he is God himself. These works of darkness are used to entrap the survivors, and keep them in captivity for the duration. Many of us have tried to warn others, but he has his loyals. I, too, was irate when I found out how he mistreated Carolyn H. and Loren G. (and many others) for trying to stand up for the truth. Dan Duval used his words that drop like honey to deceive the victims into following his deception. What he didn’t plan on was them being awake enough to understand what he was doing. He has no credentials to council or treat any Satanically/Ritually abused survivors. They are sold by his words and manipulation of spiritual practices. Dan Duval is a programmer — just ask those that were part of his “ministry”. Sad thing is, that those still there can not discern the truth from the lies. Ironically, he claims to help people “discover the truth”.” CV

~ ~ ~

“I got my own testimony visiting a church in the 90’s where the Kundalini spirit was so powerful that people were cackling, making bizarre noises, and laughing like crazed lunatics. I literally ran down the isle and out the front door, terrified. It would be 25 years before I ever entered another church assembly. Having discernment is a gift for those who ask for it.” A

~ ~ ~

“I went and listened to some of the Carolyn Hamlett and Loren Grace conversations about leaving Bride Ministries and the spirit man teachings, and I had to go repent. I had repeated things I had picked up from Dan Duval listening to him years ago.

Also, opening portals is huge in Dan Duval’s teachings. He says that Jesus is not only a realm but a portal also (we know He [Jesus] is the way to the Father, and the sheepfold for the sheep, but this is not some occult idea of a portal), and Dan says we are portals, too, if were made in the image of God, and we can open portals by the authority God gave us.

The idea of having the ability and authority to open portals to bring in God’s angels, or to bring in healing (including arms and legs, eyes, etc… for those that need them) from God’s store houses is so in line with occult witchcraft that I cannot believe I didn’t see it when I first heard it. Try and find that interview. I believe it is [called] “Dan Duval interviewing The Praying Medic”. And there is another interview where Daniel talked about a vision of God’s storehouses, and it was body parts: legs, arms, livers, all ready for when anyone who has a missing leg or is paralyzed needs healing.

These men get so much of their doctrine from dreams and visions. Unless that dream or vision directly lines up with the word of God, then that is by no means a reliable source, and a perfect tool of the enemy to deceive those open to those experiences.” JS

~ ~ ~

“Another false doctrine that seems to be taking hold is that as long as we are Christians, it is perfectly okay to “take back” for God what has been “stolen” by Satan. Such as, its fine to have yoga in church as long as we are quoting bible verses instead of meditating… etc. I believe this comes from churches being afraid to be seen as noninclusive, when God clearly states in His word that we are a peculiar people set apart.” BR

“I have often wondered why modern day professing Christians are so obsessed with the supernatural. Many years ago I was caught up in the so-called laughing in the spirit and getting drunk in the spirit wave of deception that swept the church 20 years ago. Man, I was so arrogant back then. I was so sure that it was a move of God’s Spirit, a kind of new wine being dispensed by God. It all seemed to make so much sense, but in the end, it was a deception. Clear as day now, but back then I was convinced.

I often wonder why people go so far out of the camp so to speak in their quests to become more spiritual, or to experience more of the divine. I guess a wicked generation seeks after a sign. It’s something I had to own in my walk with the Lord. One day I prayed that the Lord would open my eyes to ANY deception in my life. I’m glad I did, because after getting rid of all my sacred cows, my walk with Jesus is so much simpler.

I heard a sermon by Paul Washer. In it, he said that the people who sit under the Benny Hinns, the Hoel Osteens, etc, are exactly where they want to be, and they are exactly where God wants them to be, because they absolutely do not want the simplicity of the Gospel. The pure simple truth of the Gospel is never enough for these people. They are always seeking more. Be that walks with angels, meetings with Jesus or “The Father” (see Kat Kerr), being translated to another place, or fake signs and wonders, as recently reported in the last few years at Bethel Reading church and the Jesus Culture deception band.

20 years ago I was so full of pride and arrogance. I was so proud to be one of Gods kid’s. I was convinced that as a child of God. I deserved to be comfortable. I deserved that promotion. After all, I was a child of the King of the universe! Now? Well, now I ponder how sinful my heart really is, but at the same time, I am deeply comforted that I serve a God of infinite mercy and patience. Now I keep short accounts.” NW

“For about 4 years, I was lost in the rabbit hole of the new age/metaphysical cult. Thankfully, God led me out of that pit back into His arms. I was raised in a Christian home, school, and church, and I believe that it is why I never quite fit in with the people I was associating with. As a child of God, I was NOT the same. I am grateful for God’s protection and patience with me as He guided me home. This new age [stuff] is so very dangerous as you have expressed. I now have to get rid of all of the books and CDs on “ascended masters”, astral projection, finding spirit guides etc., not to mention the whole crystal/stone collection I have. I feel so stupid, but it taught me not to trust anything that is not truly of God or the teachings of the Bible. Thank you for shedding light on this deception for those who may still be lost down that rabbit hole. God bless you.” DK

If you’d like to send us your own testimony for consideration to be added to this list, you may do so by using the form at the bottom of the page at this link:

Alternatively, you can comment on our Facebook pages with the testimony you’d like to be made public. (The links to our Facebook pages can be found on the “Contact Us” page.)

If your testimony is already on your own webpage, or in a document that you have authored, and you would like us to consider linking to your content, please contact us for consideration.

Please Note 

We will not share testimonies that are giving praise to or making excuses for those ministers and ministries (cults) who are teaching doctrines of demons and bringing great spiritual harm to people. If you agree with these doctrines of demons and want to support those men and women who are teaching those false doctrines, then you are certainly free to share your opinions and experiences in other places. But not here. So don’t even bother contacting us.

We are not investigative reporters, nor are we law officers; therefore, we will not share testimonies that are accusing any person or ministry of things that are illegal and that can be used against them in criminal court (e.g., theft, stalking, harassment, physical or sexual abuse, in the physical). If you have proof that someone you have been or are associated with is doing things that are illegal that can be tried in the court of law, then contact the authorities, and possibly the news stations around you. They have the resources and the authority to investigate. We do not.

We will not share testimonies from people who name the victims of these cults and cult leaders without their permission, and accuse them of lying about what they have said or are saying. This holds true for both current and former victims.

First, it’s the business of the victims themselves to come out and share their testimony on their own terms, if they are able and when they are able, without the false shame and guilt heaped upon their heads for having fallen prey to unbiblical doctrines, unscrupulous manipulators, and cult leaders.
And second, this forum is to bring to light those organizations and individualswho are teaching false doctrine and bringing great spiritual harm to others, and not to shame the victims of such ungodly cults.

General statements, however, such as “my family has been torn apart by this ministry or minister or false doctrine” may be acceptable, provided the testimony does not come across as being hateful or spiteful.

While your email does not have to be long, a certain amount detail is needed in order to be an effective testimony that can be shared with others. For instance, it’s not enough to say, “I had a bad feeling about So-and-So Minister.” At the least, you need to explain what was said or done that gave you this “bad feeling.”

We will not publish your name unless you give us express permission to publish your name, and we will only use first names. If you’d like to use a pseudonym, that is fine, too, provided the pseudonym is not vulgar or otherwise inappropriate.

We will not publish any of your private and personal information, such as your email address. If you have a web address that you would like for us to consider sharing with other people, let us know.

While some people, including Carolyn and Loren, choose to “name names” of ministers and ministries that are teaching false doctrine, you are under no obligation to do so in order to share your testimony. There may be many different reasons why “naming names” is not something that you are able to do, and your testimony can still be just as effective. So, if you would like to share your testimony about any ministry or minister (even a testimony about Bride Ministries and affiliated individuals), but not give names of those ministries or ministers, you are still more than welcome to share your experiences. We appreciate the fact that you are willing to share, and we don’t expect anything more than what you are comfortable with giving.

After sharing your testimony with us, and after we post your testimony on this page, if you then decide that you would like us to take down your testimony for any reason or for no reason at all, please contact us and let us know. We will do our best to comply. While we can’t make any guarantees due to miscommunication, misunderstanding, technical error, illness, or the like, we will comply to the best of our ability and as quickly as we are able.

When necessary, we will edit the content of your testimony for proper flow, clarity, length, and basic grammar and punctuation.

If we have any questions about your testimony, we will contact you.

We reserve the right to refuse to share any testimony on this blog, or links to any testimonies on other webpages, for any reason or no reason at all. We also reserve the right to take down any testimony that has previously been published on this website, for any or no reason at all.

● IMPORTANT NOTE: “Tolerance” is not a fruit of the Spirit of God. If you still have any connections whatsoever with Bride Ministries (including being associated with people who are associated to people in BM), you are showing yourself to be tolerant of workers of darkness who are masquerading as workers of light, and we will not involve ourselves in helping you share your testimony. If we share your testimony and find out later that you are still associated with Bride Ministries in any capacity whatsoever, we will take your testimony down from our page. We have learned from experience that, unfortunately, to open our doors to even speak to those who have connections to workers of darkness, is opening ourselves up to unnecessary attack by both the demonic and humans in the astral. Please read and understand: Ephesians 5:11Titus 3:10Romans 16:172 John 1:7-111 Corinthians 52 Corinthians 6:14-18, and others.
