There are no atheists in hell!

Spurgeon's sermon, "Last Things" No. 667.

How will unbelief look in the flames of hell? There are no infidels anywhere but on earth!There are none in heaven, and there are none in hell. Atheism is a strange thing. Even the devils never fell into that vice, for "the devils believe and tremble." And there are some of the devil's children that have gone beyond their father in sin, but how will it look when they are forever lost? When God's foot crushes them, they will not be able to doubt his existence! When he tears them in pieces and there is none to deliver, then their sophistical syllogisms, their empty logic, their brags and bravadoes, will be of no avail! Oh, that they had been wise and had not darkened their foolish hearts, but had turned unto the living God!
