  2. What biblical texts make it clear that what God has already given to believers is totally sufficient for our salvation and spiritual sustenance?
  3. In 2 Peter 1:5-11, what three promises does God give to believers who diligently keep the faith, walk the walk, and by grace conform to Christ?
  4. What two pre-existing spiritual conditions often contribute to professing believers getting carried away by “various and strange doctrines?” (See 2 Peter 3:16-17.)
