So wouldn't be fair to say that Paul was somewhat of a special case? While practicing good works attests to one's faith in Christ and his teachings, faith in Christ, rather than good works, is the only means of salvation. The crisis of theology beginning with William of Ockham in the fourteenth century was occurring in conjunction with the new burgher discontent.
