UPDATE: WBRZ reports that the Shreveport pastor who was going to seal himself inside a coffin for three days will camp out in a tent instead. 

According to WBRZ, the church now says that the coffin was only going to be used as a backup in case of bad weather. They insist that the coffin announcement was not a stunt.

A Shreveport bishop says he will be sealed in a coffin for three days as part of his church's Easter program. 

The Advocate reports that Bishop Rickey Moore with Sunrise Baptist Church will emerge from the coffin on Easter morning. 

It's one part of a four-part drama series that starts at 1 p.m. on Good Friday. 

The bishop told media outlets that it's not a stunt, but a way to "save souls."
