I think it is always a good idea to ask yourself what you gain from your beliefs. If you gain a lot, and if you lose nothing, I think you should question this kind of belief. It is probably not true.

The atheist believes in no God. They don't believe there is a man in the sky who cares about them, or listens to their prayers and grants their requests. They don't believe they will live forever in paradise. They don't believe they will see their dead relatives, friends, dogs, cats, etc. again in heaven and will live with them forever. So what does the atheists gain from his beliefs? Nothing at all.

The atheist is more concerned with truth. If you are simply believing something so that you can have a false kind of happiness, then you are believing for selfish reasons.

There is another way to put this. PLEASE be honest. Imagine that Jesus was a good man, exactly the way you think he is. He taught people to help the poor, he wanted people to love their enemies and be humble, etc. BUT...he didn't promise you anything after death. You just had to believe in him because he was a good man. Imagine if there were no supernatural stories attached to him, no virgin birth, no raising the dead. Imagine if he was just a good man with a good message. NOW..be honest, do you HONESTLY believe there would be a Christian church today? I think you know there would not be. So chances are very good that atheism is the way to truth.
