why is theft bad?

Because it is morally wrong and makes the world a horrible place for everyone to live in. It's not god that should be stopping you, but your compassion for fellow human beings. If we can't treat each other with respect, what have we got?

You don't need God to stop you from stealing. According to some religions you can be the worst criminal on the planet, and still get into heaven on the basis of your belief alone. There are plenty of earthly deterents for those who don't believe in God such as: 1) your own sense of shame and guilt 2) your ability to empathize with the victim (you would not want someone to steal from you, so you don't steal from others) 3)the consequences if you get caught (e.g. time in jail, having your reputation ruined, getting fired from your job) 4) the positive emotions you experience when you earn your money honestly.
