Bishop Eddie Long is in the news again not for his ministry but because recent pictures of the Bishop sparked health care concerns.

The bishop has lost a lot of weight. He’s loss so much weight in fact that he’s almost unrecognizable. Long was captured on video during an appearance he made before his New Birth Missionary Church in Lithonia, Georgia.

Church members were so excited to see the bishop because it was reported that he was in hospice. During that time, his assistant said he was dealing with a “health challenge” dating back to September.

New Birth Missionary Church released a statement:

“I am recovering from a health challenge that I trust God to deliver me from,” he said. “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. At this time my family and I are requesting that you respect our privacy. I truly appreciate your prayers and support for me, my loved ones and my beloved New Birth Church Family.”

To further explain his health, he followed-up explaining to his congregation that he was in good health. Despite the rumors, Long claims that his weight loss was a result of a new raw, vegetarian diet.
