Can the truth and reality of God be known without a believing mind?

But no-one can know or get sanctified by God's truth without believing in and with Him Bob.
Which occurs when one is convicted of their SIN by the Holy Spirit, and places their gifted FAITH in His SIN OFFERING for their Cleansing. Believing a "Theology" isn't productive.

But how can you be "convicted of" your "SIN by the Holy Spirit", the same Spirit that is "the Spirit of truth". So what do you think causes this conviction, if not us disbelieving what "the Spirit of truth" believes? That's what causes the conflict in the convicted, the Spirit of truth believing in and for us that God exists, but us not believing in accordance to what He believes. The Bible talks more about belief and believing more than it talks and refers to anything else. But then you say that "Believing a Theology isn't productive"? Let me remind you what theology is; it is the study of the nature of God and belief.

Do you know the best place to hide something and deceive them into thinking it doesn't even exist?

The Holy Spirit coming upon us, and PERSONALLY presenting the reality of our SIN, and the penalty thereof. This makes REAL repentance possible. As another here has said: NO CONVICTION = NO CONVERSION. It takes more than "Intellectual Belief" to be Born Again. only Biblical FAITH will get 'er done. Intellectual belief only = "Religion"/ "Theology".

And the "Theology" may be as phony as a three dollar bill and just as useless. All God's Chilluns gots "Theologies".
