Beza: No Good Works Can Save You

Therefore, this is our thesis:  No good works of the regenerate, even which are most excellent before others from themselves or in themselves, can endure the judgment of God, because they are imperfect, impure, and mixed with vice, and therefore they have no reason of cause of our justification before God or of our absolution and acceptance to eternal life.
