Are Atheists A Necessary Evil?

I was just wondering.....if atheists didn't exist would faith be necessary?
If everyone believed would the concept of faith exist?

It seems it is necessary for some to perish in order for faith to exist. The Bible says it is impossible to please God without faith so in order for God to be pleased some need to perish.

I do not understand your reasoning. Could you elaborate?

Why some need to perish? Why if all believed concept of faith would not exist?
But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:21

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
-- Philippians 1:6

Define faith. Even Atheists have faith. It is however particular faith that gets factored into Gods judgement. Faith in Christ. The opposite of which is not Atheism but rather anything anti-Christ.

God said he doesn't wish anyone on this earth to perish. Faith is a choice and without faith there is no love.
Can I scientifically prove to anyone that my dad loves me? The answer is no, but I have faith with everything in my heart that he does. Atheists have always had a choice but because they want to be their own God they choose to rebel.

I once had an atheist tell me that one day man will be able to download his thoughts into a simulator and live in his own simulated world and become his own God. 8-}2
Do you see what Satan can do to a person without them realizing it?
