Lets just suspend belief for a moment and assume that we do belive in god.
He supposed to be almighty but he feels the need to prove to his mortal creations that he alone has the right to rule. He decides to do this by allowing them to suffer unspeakably for centeries. Then he sends his son to earth, so that his son can suffer unspeakably and die too.
His son dying is supposed to atone for the creations sins, but instead of calling it quits there, god allows them to continue suffering. And also ignores the fact that its his removal of his creations perfection that makes them sin anyway.
No the almightly who should answer to no one feels the need to sooth his brusied ego by seeing untold suffering on a daily basis. Just so that he can sit in heavens and declare "see!? i told you so!" and " why are you whining? its good for you! teaches you sinners a lesson!"
Can i ask if theres any parents here who if say insulted by a neighbour, would decide to make their childrens life hell just to somehow prove a point?
