> Unfortunately, Scripture doesn’t agree with him on those subjects,

I beg to differ. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_works for a list of references.

> As far as good works go, they show faith, they don’t accrue salvatory credits

It may be argued that while good works do not “accrue salvatory credits”, they are a necessary consequence of divine grace. Not doing good works can thus be viewed as evidence of insalvancy.

Cart before the horse again, since we are not responsible for the good works done by us in faith, it is God working in and through us. The usual Catholic reliance on 'me'. God's work, not mine. Wiki is a poor source even when it uses the Bible for a reference.
