One other thought on Jeremiah’s indictment of Israel’s false prophets:
Not only is Truth a question of present and future, but given what Jeremiah says concerning the requirement of prophets to expose the sins of the people, Truth has everything to do with the past as well. Exposing sins is a task which includes recounting what has already taken place in a particular way. Confessing sins is the act of telling the story like God does and not massaging the facts to appease our conscience.
Truth, in order to be Truth, must bind up past, present, and future together.
