Faith by works

Catholics believe, in my understanding, that IN ADDITION to accepting Jesus, you must act the part. If you follow Augustine, this is a requirement for getting into Heaven, but the final decision is up to god. How does this differ from the view of people like Macarthur or Sproul? What's wrong with saying that you have to follow the Bible by your actions? Or is this the wrong understanding of what faith by works means? I know some believe that Salvation is ultimately god's descision that we cannot effect, but many Catholics hold this view, because Augustine did, in my understanding. It's just that a requirement is that you must demonstrate faith by your actions.
