Who gets the credit or blame for our eternal fate? 3 perspectives

One of the most heated debates in recent theology is about how we are saved or lost eternally. Rather than engage in words first -- which I've done before and may again -- I'd like to offer a chart of how I see the 3 main views:

Type of view
Saved by
Lost by
Sovereignty-based view
God's decision
God's decision
Decision-based view
man's decision
man's decision
Two agents view
God's decision
man's decision
It is so tempting to launch into words; I've got paragraphs of them saved off to the drafts folder. But I think there is a place where the clarity of a chart is better than the wordiness of an explanation.
