There Are No Atheists in Hell

no atheists in hell

Bill Wiese, an Evangelical Christian who believes he literally spent twenty-three minutes in Hell, says that there will be no atheists in Hell.

Wiese writes:

The fact is that you won’t see hell while you are still alive. Salvation requires faith in what Jesus did for you on the cross. Salvation requires a purposeful act on your part … before you die. If you say you need to see hell before you will surrender your life to Jesus, you will neversurrender your life. You will see hell because you rejected the only way of salvation, and you will spend eternity apart from God.

If you call yourself an atheist, you won’t be one after seeing hell. You will have no excuse before God at Judgment Day for your denial of His existence. The evidence of design was all around you your entire life, but you ignored it and denied the obvious. You condemned yourself to hell by your very own words, and by rejecting the cross.


You are a nothing and a nobody in hell. You will never see your friends or anyone else ever again. You will be in total darkness, kept apart from others. You will have no conversation, no interaction and no purpose. You will be completely isolated and forgotten.

No one escapes hell. No one ever gets relief from the pain and torment. There will be no sleep, no peace, no food, no water, no comfort, no escaping the heat and flames, and there will be absolutely no hope.

If you could see hell for just five seconds, you wouldn’t waste time focused on how people have hurt or disappointed you. You would forget about yourself and start helping others to escape this horrific place. You would serve God and quit complaining.

If you could see hell for five seconds, you would fall on your knees and cry out to God to save you. You would turn away from your sinful lifestyle. You would surrender your life to Jesus and make Him your Lord and Savior. You would renounce the name of Satan and reject absolutely anything to do with him.

I agree with Wiese, There will be NO atheists in Hell. Why? Because Hell doesn’t exist. The only Hell I know of is a community in Michigan. I plan to go to this Hell sometime this summer. Pictures to follow, which is far more than Wiese can provide for his Hell.

    Hey! Preacher boy! Wiese! …… This is why your Bible is so full of contradictions.

    “You will be in total darkness” or how about “no escaping the heat and flames” … so which is it? The bright lights of fire or the crisp coldness of the dark. This is the problem when preachers cast lies out into the world. If you’re going to lie, write it down so you can at the very least …. KEEP YOUR GOD DAMN LIES STRAIGHT ! Otherwise it makes your readings nonsensical and too tiring to read.

    Better luck next time ……. little boy (your mother must have spared the rod and mouth soap ….. but I wouldn’t have ….. ).

    So there is one omnimax God, who gives his followers instructions via an assemblage of literature written by people with clearly differing agendas (aka the Bible), and instills them with a spirit who is supposed to help them interpret that assemblage of literature. But this Holy Spirit does its job so badly that we have in excess of 42K Christian sects, and the number is growing. This ominmax God either has far less understanding of human nature than some of us seasoned humans and figured we’d all live in peace and harmony and never break his laws, or else he’s a breathtakingly evil masochist who knew we’d screw up before he ever made us. He develops this scheme for saving humans from eternal torture only if they believe in the part of him who was tortured to death and resurrected (and neither of those claims has any supporting evidence). Oh, and if they lived before these events took place a couple thousand years ago (the genus Homo is traced back some 2.4 million years, the species Homo sapiens goes back half a million years), or if they never hear about this event, they will be tortured forever when they die.

    I’m not buying into that bad nightmare of a tale. As for design all around us, um, no, as I scientist I say that the only things around us designed, were designed by humans.

    That’s seriously one of the dumbest things I think I’ve read quoted on this site. If none of us “see hell” before we die, how does Wiese claim to know so much about it? The Bible doesn’t physically describe hell, that I recall, other than a few metaphors about fire and misery. The OT barely mentions it. So how does he know so much, eh?

    Honestly, the ridiculousness of the very concept of hell was one of the first things that steered me away from Christianity as a kid (first toward Reform Judaism, and later to UU.) I still find the idea pretty laughable… but obviously there are a lot of folks out there who take it deathly seriously, and I just don’t get it.

    So the supposed omnipotent god wants us to think he’s all-loving, except we’re imperfect and have a hard time understanding a perfect salvation that involves torture (Jesus). Somehow, this doesn’t sound in the least bit loving to me.

    I have to agree, BJW. I read that book when it first came out. Certainly it would keep a few suicidal people from ending it, because it was so frightening. Very depressing stuff. Weise had to go to bed for a while, after his experience. I watched those ” I went to Hell” videos. Ick !!

      That’s Christianity for you: always winter but never Christmas. Everything, but everything, is going to happen after you die, in the future, this year, next year, some time, never. It never delivers on any of its ‘promises’.

    It’s a pity that we can’t prosecute hell-thumpers for uttering threats, deliberately terrorizing people to coerce compliance with their silly-ass beliefs.

    Wait, you can’t see hell while your alive? And this man claims to have spent minutes in hell nd he is alive still? Weird. Wow, you know what i find funny, we have people who say they were abducted by aliens or being to Buddhist heaven or time travel and have stories too just like his to back it up. People experience strange things always but noooo, once its not in line with their teaching, ur experience is merely “demon motivated”. Im getting tired of all this, it is such a bad thing to ask for one evidence, just one.
