Bishop Lamor Whitehead took to the streets of Instagram a day after he was arrested by the feds for fraud, extortion, and giving false statements.
The murky man of God was all smiles and noticeably dressed down as he campaigned for the public to give him a chance because an arrest does not equate to guilt.
As you guys know and the media let you guys know I was arrested yesterday.
And just because you are arrested doesn’t make you guilty. It’s the way of the world.
And we live in a place called America and you are innocent until proven guilty.
He went on to proclaim his innocence.
First of all, I want to say that I’m not guilty. I want to make that clear, y’all.
That’s why I have a smile on my face. I’m in an amazing spirit. I’m great.
I’m not guilty.

Lamor Whitehead’s decision to address the public may not have been a wise one because his words didn’t move the Instagram congregation.
One person commented, “At this point, it’s not about if you’re guilty or not. You talk too much.”
Another commenter offered the Bishop this warning:
Familiar spirit. I belonged to a church & the “bishop” gaslit to control & increase tithes/offerings.
Meanwhile members were struggling afraid to not give because of the wrath “the bishop” spoke over them.
Driving expensive cars, house etc church members paid for, but wouldn’t pay the church mortgage on time.
The Father will not be mocked. Do not use The Word to gaslight. If you were called, shift your focus.
This is the warning..
Bishop Lamor Whitehead is charged with two counts of wire fraud, each of which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years, one count of extortion, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years, and one count of making false statements, which carries a maximum sentence of five years.
He better stop playing with God and his God’s children.
