The sense I get from BDAG is different than what you have
said here. FAULOS seems to be a far less harsh word. It
seems to denote "to be relatively inferior in quality, ordinary."
In fact, BDAG suggests this is how 2 Cor. 5:10 is to be understood.

On what basis do you give FAULOS the sense of "evil" ?
