I don't believe this is the Absolute use here...but rather a simple
ajectival participle with the ADOKIMON NOUN (v.28). ie. to qualify this
type of mind....
or it could be an adverbial participle modifying the PAREDWKEN (V.28).

I would say it is simply ajectival to the accusative NOUN.

PAREDWKEN AUTOUS hO QEOS EIS ADOKIMON NOUN...
peplhrwmenous pash adikia ponhria pleonexia kakia ...
... mestous fqonou fonou eridos dolou kakohqeias
katalalous qeostugeis ubristas uperhfanous alazonas, efeuretas
kakwn, goneusin apeiqeis,
Could all three clauses be simply adverbial clauses (accusative of
manner)...simply describing the manner of PAREDWKEN?
just a though...and guessing...
