Skyrim and Rom 3

 10 As it is written:

   “There is no one righteous, not even one;
 11 there is no one who understands;
   there is no one who seeks God.
12 All have turned away,
   they have together become worthless;
there is no one who does good,
   not even one. (Ps 14:1–3, 53:1-3)”<sup class="footnote" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[b]”>
13 “Their throats are open graves (Ps. 5:9);
   their tongues practice deceit .”<sup class="footnote" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[c]”>
“The poison of vipers is on their lips (Ps. 140:3).”<sup class="footnote" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[d]”> 
 14 “Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness (Ps. 10:7).”<sup class="footnote" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[e]”>
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
 16 ruin and misery mark their ways,
17 and the way of peace they do not know (Is. 59:7).”<sup class="footnote" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="[f]”>
 18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes (Ps. 36:1).”
This sounds like one really bad dude. Terrible dude. It reminds me of my character on Skyrim. He is one bad dude. He steals, kicks and destroys anything that gets in his way. Not nice. He is bad.
But the reality is that all men, you and myself included, before salvation are all equally bad. We are all sinners. There is nothing good man can do on their own that can save themselves! No one can even seek out God on there own! 
How awesome it is that God comes down to man and saves us, even in our unworthy state. This truth is one that NO OTHER religion believes in. In other religions man has to work to earn something for God, but not with the Christianity of the Bible.
