Because, by your own statement, you got it wrong.
You misunderstood what I said or meant.

Oh yes you do, you just take God for granted.

No we really don't. Now is your god unable to stop evil or does he allow it?

You're just sounding silly now; and you take the pink unicorn floating behind Jupiter for granted.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

Then explain how those children take God for granted or clarify what it is that you really meant.

So can he not stop evil and is therefore impotent or does he allow evil and therefore is evil? Pick one.
Of course He can stop evil, He is the Light that destroys all darkness. But He allows evil so as to let vanity be seen for what it is and does. Read post 1.

I mean that Satan took God's given attributes for granted in vanity. He loved his beauty and intellect in comparison to others less gifted. He therefore desired to be as great as God, the highest of all stations in the godhead.

This can be seen when the innocence of mankind was destroyed by the suggestion that they were only content in the garden because they were ignorant in their lowliness. Therefore the innocent don't take God for granted. Only those who aspire to be more than what God makes them to be. This vain reasoning therefore finds fault through cynicism in what is pure through faith.
Vanity tries to fix what is not broken and breaks it.

See the prodigal son or the cartoon Alladin.
