I have never said that "our" works saves us and the Catholic church has never taught that. It is God's work in us.So you are now changing your tune. So we are now saved by grace through faith and not our works but God's works. You have changed your tune. I mean you have always said in the past we have to do works.
I have as much authority as you have to close the case. You have no final authority and the bad tree has none, as it is lead by blind guides who have no authority.
