Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians

Ben Crawford, one of the leaders of The Church Team.

“You may say to yourself “my power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me,” but remember The Lord, your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers as it is today” Deuteronomy 8: 17-18 as read by Dusty, a card counter, from his iPhone

When I think of Christians, I often think of the man who used to come in when I was waiting tables and talk to me for hours on end about Christ and The Bible. He would take up one of my tables and when he would leave I wouldn’t find a cash tip. Instead I would find pamphlets about churches in the area and why Jesus Christ should be my lord and savior. Now, I know that not all religious folk are like that, but man, did it leave a bad taste in my mouth.

I am not a religious person whatsoever. I believe that if you want to follow religion closely then that is your right as a human being. HOLY ROLLERS gave me a look at the type of Christians who don’t unintentionally rob you of a day’s tips to inform you about why you should save yourself while there’s still time. Instead, these Christians take millions of dollars from casinos. Tatted up, beer-drinking, pipe-smoking gamblers. The Church Team is what they call themselves and they are spearheaded by Ben Crawford and Colin Jones.Read More »
