39 Atheist behavior incurs God’s wrath on world

Believer says: Atheists need to get right with God. They are living immoral lives if they don’t obey God. The atheist world will suffer God’s wrath if it doesn’t repent.

But skeptic says: Well, what can I say? Because, as I understand it, the New Testament says Christians should solely judge brother and sister Christians in sin. That is to say, in the writings of Paul, Christians are directed not to judge non-Christians:

1 Corinthians [Y]ou must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people. 12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? 13 God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.”

Recap: Paul says don't judge non-Christians. So Christians shouldn't say judgmental stuff such as "atheists are living immoral lives if they don’t obey God."
