if we wage war against hell and win

if we become so technological advanced that we could beat even the devils, does this mean we will have no reason to behave according to the bible? there will be no executioners left to punish us when we die, so what's stopping us from doing what we want?

There's a piece of web fiction based precisely off that scenario. It's called The Salvation War. Basically, Hell gets horribly horribly curbstomped.

That would make an awesome movie if done right.

but does it deal with what happens after we curbstomp them? if we no longer have to fear punishment in the afterlife, wouldn't this change our morality?

This topic reminds me of Doom II. Although the problem with Hell's destruction there is not so much a question of morality, but more like "huh, where are all the evil souls are going to go now?"

Yup. Don't want to spoil it all for you, but we basically treat the invasion of Hell as we did Afghanistan and Iraq. We setup rehabilitation and housing for the deceased, etc. And humanity essentially gets two lives now. And there's stuff like recently deceased soldiers in the war becoming insurgents in Hell.

The sequel has us invade Heaven, complete with angels getting nuked.

The first book, "Armageddon", is the invasion of Hell. "Pantheocide" is the invasion of Heaven. It can be found for free on the author's website. He couldn't publish it because a Ukrainian pirate put it up on torrent sites, so no publisher would accept it.

It can be found there.

Christ will crash them, could be sooner than you think. The battle of Armageddon.

1% of prisoners are atheist. If atheists had no threat of retribution in death, then wouldn't that number be a bit higher?

The problem starts when we are having a discussion just fine and you come along and derail the topic because you can't stand us all having the same definition.
