I would say that only faith in Christ (with the subsequent forgiveness of sin by God and -- especially -- the indwelling and regeneration by the Holy Spirit that results from such faith) can cause the "natural" human "heart" (that is, a person's will and thoughts) -- no matter how "good" they might be judged to be by earthly standards -- to be regarded from God's holy perspective as anything (as stated in Isaiah 64:6) other than "filthy rags" (which I understand was a reference to the material that a woman used at that time to absorb her monthly menstrual flow)..
