Shakespeare in Love. . .with Truth

I’m wondering whether the opening lines from William Shakespeare’s sonnet, The Passionate Pilgrim (Sonnet 138), could help us understand what’s going on when a person gets passionate in their “love for God.”

“When my love swears that she is made of truth, I do believe her, though I know she lies.”

The classic lover’s quarrel of believing and knowing, reason and faith, head and heart?

Hark!  What thinkest thou?
