What Motivates Atheists?

It almost impossible for a Christian to understand the motivation of the atheist trying to shake the Christian’s faith. The Christian imagines it has something to with the atheist wanting to watch the Christian suffer from God’s wrath. But the atheist is convinced no gods exist so how could such a pleasure even be conceived? Most people are not sadists. Sadism cannot be the motive. But then why is the atheist trying to disillusion the Christian?
