If you doubt that something is true, then you don't really believe that it's true.
How can you doubt that something is true while absolutely believing that it is true? It just makes no logical sense whatsoever. It's not possible.

Excuse me but you are no expert of faith nor believing!

Hebrews 11
11 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

Are "conviction" and "assurance" not the same as complete confidence?

I am assured that if I step out of the front door of this building, there will be a sidewalk for my foot to land on. I have such conviction that I won't even look down to check. If I had any doubts, I'd check very carefully before striding out. I don't see how the two are compatible.
