Embattled megachurch pastor Bishop Eddie Long has returned to the pulpit of Georgia’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Church after being away for weeks, but the senior pastor has lost a significant amount of weight, prompting more prognoses about the state of his health. As Long praise danced at the altar, he looked almost unrecognizable—his thick hair gone, and replaced with a shiny bald head.

As reported by NewsOne months ago, Long had been fielding calls and concerns about this health for some time, but the executive administrator of New Birth released a statement saying in part that he had changed his diet, and had been healed by the grace of God:
“I am recovering from a health challenge that I trust God to deliver me from. It is unrelated to the eating for life diet consisting of mostly raw vegetables that I am continuing, as part of a holistic approach to good health.”
Yet, his return this time has again set the rumor mill abuzz, with some reports saying he was in hospice earlier in the month; and many saying that his illness is just desserts for the accusations he has faced of molesting young boys from his congregation in the past.
I heard from a Sanctified Soul Sistah that Bishop Eddie Long is in hospice…

“Bishop” Eddie Long is a walking example of Romans 6:23. “For the wages of sin is death.”
