Advantages

 The atheist has no moral or spiritual restraints on his lifestyle.

 The atheist has an advantage over the Christian in that he has an extra day for personal use and pleasure. He can sleep, golf, fish, or anything he chooses on the first day of the week.

 The atheist has extra funds for his personal use. He is not expected to share his prosperity with God’s cause or for such Christian endeavors as caring for the poor, orphans, those who are down and out. And obviously, he will feel no need to underwrite missionary efforts for the cause of Christ.

 The atheist has no concerns about right and wrong. He need not search his soul or apologize for violating nay ancient precept of moral behavior. As Dostoyevsky said, “If God is not, nothing is morally wrong.” His entire moral structure is generally based upon moral relativism.

 The atheist has no need to worry about such things as judgment. This is all tied to religion and they don’t exist because for him there is no ultimate judge of his behavior.

Disadvantages

 They all shall die (Hebrews 9:27)

 They all shall be resurrected on the final day By Jesus (John 5:28-29).

 They all will one day stand before God and give an account to Him who created them, provided every blessing they enjoyed and gave His Son to save (Romans 14:10; II Corinthians 5:10).

 All, including atheists, must spend eternity somewhere, either in heaven or hell (Matthew
25:46).
