Citizens who materially undermine our national interest, especially security, are considered traitors or collaborators with the enemy. This is true if they provide military secrets, transfer technology, or, in come cases, speaking in a way that demoralizes the troops (Hanoi Jane).
The children of God can behave in a way that makes them traitors too (Eze. 13:22). They will claim it is not evil, but good. And, they will act regardless of the destruction it causes. In so doing, they tarnish their reputation among the faithful.
In this study we will notice how Christians strengthen the hands of the wicked when they:
1. Commit sin with them;
2. Uphold the sin;
3. Hinder the truth.
