what good works have you done?
if you are good it be your own salvation then putting faith in YOUR good works.
We may both be saying the same thing just in different ways. I can't earn my salvation by the works of the Law of Moses. None of the ordinances and the statues under Moses Law can be kept. Theses are called works by Paul.
Paul and James understood that by faith there will be works such as caring for others, the widow and the fatherless and loving my neighbor....these are works, called the works of Christ in us.
We are required as servants of Christ, to act on these needs when we see them, to care for others, as this is Christ working His works in us, but we must be checking ourselves to see that we are listening to Christ in these things and are obedient to these works of His.
