If I profess to defend the Doctrines of Grace and yet am not assured of the truth of them, is not that a lie?

If I have never felt my depravity. If I have never been effectually called, never known my election of God, never rested in the redeeming blood, and have never been renewed by the Spirit, is not my defense of the Doctrines of Grace a lie?
