Wow...i really dont know where to begin with this. I understand you are saying that this is your interpretation of the passage. But we cannot give new meaning to a passage. Only the original author can give meaning to the passage. This is a basic principle of interpretation of scripture. It is only our job to search for that original meaning.
Now I really dont understand how you made that Scripture about Auburn and Alabama. This passage is not dealing with anything about non-believers vs. non-believers, or anything sports related. This passage passage is about the greatness of God. And how he will be with us during our hard times. ALABAMA BEING GOOD IS NOT A TIME OF PERSECUTION FOR US! You have made it sound like we are being persecuted. I take offense to that when i have missionary friends in China and Indonesia who are being beaten and put in jail for their faith. I also have friends who have died in those countries for their faith. This is what this verse is talking about. How long will those who suppress the truth of Christ will you allow to be jubilant. This is the desperation that is being expressed here. It is the name of God that is being suppressed and a servant of him that was being threatened. This has nothing to do with being an Auburn or Alabama fan. This verse is not about us. It is about God. Any other interpretation of this passage is wrong. When we read scripture we must ask where is Christ in this passage, and not try to see where we are in it. Our identity is found in Christ. We must look for Christ in all of Scripture and not ourselves.
