Dilemma of suffering

Is posed like this: Suffering exists and God is all good.
1. Either God is not good and so He allows suffering or
2. God is not all powerful and cannot stop it.

Or stated another way: how can God allow suffering? Yes, I quite agree that this is the most profound thing we can ever ask ourselves. How could God allow some stupid grubby greedy finite created filthy sinful worms to cause Him so much grief that He would be torn apart on the cross? How could God permit that we would hurt Him so on that dark day? That is truely the right question to ask. Let us join with the stupid atheists in pondering it.
