A Thomist - Not by Works

"A Thomist" offers an insightful consideration of the contradictions inherent in Protestant formulations of "not by works". I commend it to you.

The ensuing conversation in the combox seems to me to be a demonstration of precisely what A Thomist said in the post, and of how there seems to be special pleading (in my opinion anyway) whenever a Protestant acknowledges that sola fide requires that he do something, which is said to be by grace, but somehow Catholics, who say that we must do something, are "wrong" despite the fact that we insist that what we do is done by grace and that we are saved by Christ alone.
