Is it possible for someone to earn salvation without Christ ?

Sorry, the answer for my question could be very simple but I need to ask things because I want to learn as much as I can from other who have more knowledge than me. Okay this issue is come up in some Indonesian forum I read just recently. It seems that there are opinion saying that for those who are not Christian there are still chances to be saved. In regard that all religion teach about righteousness, justice, kindness and love toward other.

And in the Romans St. Paul said that :

13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

So according to that, if one do live doing things contained in the law they will be considered as righteous by God. I can say that without Jesus I can’t live righteously, because I know it, I mean I know I can’t. I have lived without Him and all I can do is sin. Only with Jesus then I can win over my sin.

But just because I can’t doesn’t mean no one can’t. So my testimony kind of nullified at this point.
