There is no Biblical basis against it. And, since 1998, no mainstream theologian or denomination (that I know of) claims that such a passage exists.
In Nov., 1998, the Pope shocked the Catholic world by stating, "Luther's expression 'sola fide' is true, . . ." In 1999, in fact, the Catholic church officially accepted sola fide in a written document, when it issued the "Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification".
It is as wordy as most such documents, but perhaps the most succinct statement was in Article 16: "Through Christ alone are we justified, when we receive this salvation in faith."
The real problem is that many people do not understand the difference between sola fide and antinomianism. Antinomianism describes an early heresy where Christians decided, "Since I am saved through faith alone, I can do whatever I want to, because Christ's grace has forgiven my sins." This is not the meaning of sola fide.
Let me quote Luther himself: “Works are necessary for salvation but they do not cause salvation." Neither the Bible nor any mainstream Christian denomination denies, at this point, that Luther got it right. Salvation is effectuated or caused by faith, period.
You can turn the cause and effect around, if you like, and say that true faith always results in a change of heart that produces good works, that is, that good works are a necessary result of faith, and a person who does not change in heart and action shows a lack of faith.
In his Introduction to Romans, Luther stated that true faith, the faith that brings salvation, is "a living, creative, active and powerful thing, this faith. Faith cannot help doing good works constantly. It doesn’t stop to ask if good works ought to be done, but before anyone asks, it already has done them and continues to do them without ceasing. Anyone who does not do good works in this manner is an unbeliever...Thus, it is just as impossible to separate faith and works as it is to separate heat and light from fire!"
James has already been cited extensively; his teaching is summed up in James 2:24,
You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone.
The confusion lies in different uses of such terms as "justified" and "faith alone". We are not justified by "faith alone" in the sense that faith is the only component of salvation. Perhaps we might say that we find salvation only through faith, or that faith and only faith will lead us to salvation.
James does not disagree with Paul's voluminous writings concerning how we are saved by faith and not by works. His writing was primarily intended to refute the predominant notion of justification by the law. We have to always keep in mind the degree to which the idea of justification by the law of Moses was fixed in the minds of contemporary Jews, which is the reason Paul argues with such focus on faith.
I am sorry that I cannot answer the question directly, but one can hardly find a quote from the Bible showing that works are not necessary for salvation, when the quote does not exist.
