"What must I do to be saved?" is a question which might well arise in the mind of an earnest seeker of salvation who has been under the influence of various types of preaching. This is due to the fact that there are two main and many mediating theories concerning the process by which salvation is attained. One of these major theories is that God is entirely responsible for man's salvation and the man himself can contribute nothing toward it. The other main theory is that man is responsible for accepting or rejecting the salvation that God offers. Between these two theories lie varying points of view concerning the relative responsibility of God and man to salvation.
