to tell them that they were wrong for persecuting you and conducting holy wars against you..And all those priests..why after all that..they get off scott free too. Oh and murderers and rapists. Free passes for everybody.
Don't be so ridiculous, as long as you live you can be punished mentally, physically & emotionally. You don't need your God for that. But you meant from the perspective of a soul?
Who said no God means no afterlife?

Yeah, it might get rid of holy wars to a degree, but it would also free up a lot of people to act up whereas their fear of god might have held them back. (this is of course the long term consequence of godlessness as an enlightened afterthought.)
Sure people would act up with no god, like be in a position of power and sexually abuse children...oops! Fear of god does little to nothing to stop people from being evil. They either just skew a chapter to justify what they do or pretend they are above it anyway.
The only big implication I can think of is that with no god, mankind will no longer be able to ignore things thinking that the big guy upstairs is taking care of it all in the end .
Hopefully that would lead to people taking more responsibility for their own actions, reaching out to others knowing that each and every person directly effects how others live.
