What do you mean "but how"? Upon finding out what they can do, every one that is show immediately becomes at least a thief. During a simple altercation at a bar, our main character teleports a guy into a bank vault - and leaves him there. Imagine what kind of money they could make as assassins? Conducting espionage? Though they are the protagonists in the movie, they are hardly the heroes.
The Paladin's motivations in the film are rooted in religion, they view the power the jumpers posses as an affront to God.
