After watching a movie or a TV show about a person with superhuman strength, kids may start to believe they could be that person. So they get the mask or the cape, and they are immediately transformed. They go around the house convinced that they are the equivalent of that superhero. A point comes, however, when they are tested just as the superhero was, and reality comes crashing in on them. In the same way, humans struggle to understand God when they view themselves as equal to God. In those moments, they call out to God not for counsel but for explanation. They treat the God of creation as if he is accountable to them instead of the other way around.
