    I was reading through Clement's epistle this morning and came across this; I'd read the epistle before, and somehow forgotten this quote.

    I found this portion to be especially interesting:

    "we... are not justified through ourselves or through our own wisdom or
    understanding or piety or works which we wrought in holiness of
    heart
    , but through faith"

    Namely, because he also excludes post-conversion "works" done under the influence of the Spirit from justification, and not just pre-conversion "works."
