Bishop Eddie Long dead at 63

After months and months and months of social media speculation surrounding his health, Bishop Eddie Long has passed passed away. 


On Sunday, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church confirmed the death of the late 63-year-old Christian leader who was said to have struggled with an extremely aggressive form of cancer. 




In response to rising concerns about his rapid weight loss– which first sparked in August 2016– the highly revered Bishop claimed that he was eating a raw vegan diet and giving up on a “slave menu,’ trusting “God to deliver me from” from the challenge.

On New Birth’s website, Long is described as:

Bishop Eddie L. Long is known worldwide as a pioneering leader, revolutionary mind changer, a family man, and a caring and loving pastor.  As a pioneering leader, Bishop Long is highly regarded for his vision, boldness, and unapologetic courage to walk in the supernatural. As a pastor, he is well respected and loved for his passion to bring souls into the body of Christ and join them to a local church body, and for preaching and teaching messages that change mindsets and encourage hearts.  At home, he is a doting husband to his beautiful wife, First Lady Vanessa Long and loving father to his 4 children and 3 grandchildren.  At New Birth, Bishop Long is most loved for being the ‘father of many’ – a pastor who loves God, God’s people, and who speaks life and declares, You shall  NOT die but live to proclaim the goodness of the Lord!   
While Bishop Long continued to maintain his stance as a powerful force in ministry, his legacy was plagued with scandal as several young men accused him of sexual inappropriateness back in 2010.   

At the news of his passing, members of the Christian faith have taken to Twitter with their thoughts on Eddie Long’s passing.
