So dear friends, those are all the math facts that you need to memorize for this session. Be prepared for daily tests, and occasional reviews of the material. So let us look at that equation one more time:

Faith (The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen, and it comes by HEARING the Word of God.)

Faith + Virtue = (Righteousness of Christ)

Faith + Virtue + Knowledge = (Growth in Relationship with Christ)

Faith + Virtue + Knowledge + Self Control = (Maturity)

Faith + Virtue + Knowledge + Self Control + Perseverance = (Fruit of the Spirit!)

Faith + Virtue + Knowledge + Self Control + Perseverance + Godliness = (Brotherly Kindness - becoming like Him!)

 This all adds up to: Love.

And the greatest of these are LOVE. 

Any questions?  Here are the notes for the entrance exam:

Review verses 10 and 11: "Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

Class dismissed!
