The Greatest Evil in this World

Grant Swart

Man-centered, works-based, freewill religion — call it by any name you will — is the single greatest evil in this world. . . and is the greatest cause of evil in this world.

The good works of religion without Christ are the most abominable evils imaginable. . . Man-centered, freewill works-religion robs God of His glory, tramples underfoot the blood of Jesus Christ, does despite to the Spirit Of Grace, and gradually abases society to its lowest, most contemptible state. . . ‘Evil workers,’ as Paul describes them in this context, are Arminians — freewillers, legalists — people who teach that God’s salvation depends on, or is in some way determined by, man: ‘evil workers.’

Don Fortner

Ephesians 2:8-9King James Version

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

      Just for reference, here is the text that you are referring to:
      Rom 1:19  For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 
      Rom 1:20  For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 
      Rom 1:21  For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 
      Rom 1:22  Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 
      Rom 1:23  and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. 

      Could you explain why, to you, this text represents the greatest evil in the world?
      Many thanks.
