Prophetess Juanita Releases Statement in Response to Last Week’s Arrest

juantabynumLast week, Gospel Recording Artist/Preacher Juanita Bynum spent the night in the Lew Sterrett Justice Center after being arrested for a warrant stemming from her failure to appear in a Dallas civil proceeding, according to public reports. She was then released after appearing in a Dallas courtroom to answer questions in the case, which includes a 2007 judgment ordering her to pay $140,000 to ALW Entertainment.

Now, Prophetess Bynum offers the following statement in response to her arrest last week:

“I would like to begin my response by offering a sincere apology for my delay of response, due to the process for completing my consultation with my attorney. Please allow me the opportunity to address the unfortunate event that I was subjected to on Thursday, April 18, in Dallas, Texas. Until recently, it was my understanding that a resolution had been reached involving a business dispute between Mr. Al Wash, of ALW Entertainment, and myself.

I was wrongfully detained by the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department for failing to appear in court several months ago for a civil court appearance, of which I knew nothing, involving the prior-mentioned business dispute. I was later released after a brief court hearing on the matter. I have not been found guilty of any fraudulent, unethical nor non-integral behavior. Please see the attached apology from Mr. Wash that was sent to me on the day of my release, April 19, at 7:18 p.m.

After showing due diligence by paying Mr. Wash $25,000 prior to April 18, Mr. Wash and I came to an impasse concerning who would be responsible for the total amount owed. “As a goodwill ambassador for Bayelsa State, Nigeria, I can no longer allow these individuals, or anyone else, to attack my character with impunity. Thank you for your prayers and support.”

“It was a misunderstanding of information,” says Wash in an email to Bynum, which she mentioned in her statement. “Dr. Bynum is a spectacular person, and we are looking forward to doing great business together in the future. I never meant for this situation to do her or her ministry any harm. I am here to help people build their career, not destroy their career, and I will always believe in Dr. Bynum.”

    This unfortunate incident illustrates the need for presumption of innocence. As history has shown over and over again anyone , anyone can be arrested for a crime. But many , many are innocent. As Christians it is our place to judge or condemn. Because you cannot love while you condemn. And even for those who do not accept the lord this incident shows that rushing to judgement is wrong. Let us give everyone the same benefit of a doubt we would want for ourselves.

    I feel bad for her but I’m still waiting on someone to tell me what qualified her as a Prophetess?

    Christians that say don’t judge really mean enable their Pastor, Priest or clergy behaving unseemly. Must not have read Galatians 2:11 PAUL EVEN CORRECTED THE EQUALLY ANOINTED PETER.

    Christians stop enabling behavior that damages the reputation of the Church! We do have biblical standards and instructions on behavior!
