A pastor with Sunrise Baptist Church, Bishop Rickey Moore have decided to pull a new stunt this Easter by sealing himself up in a coffin for three days and emerging on Easter morning.

It’s unclear how Bishop Moore is going to pull off such a feat, or handle his bodily functions considering he plans on remaining inside of the casket until 3 am Easter morning. He assured his parishioners that he’ll be in the coffin the whole time. The Louisiana pastor told KDAM-TV in Mississippi his time in the coffin is no stunt but just his attempt to save souls and get people to accept Jesus. He’ll spend his time praying and fasting, he said.
