    The thing is, these guys, especially "Evangelical" Christians, "single out" everybody sooner or later. No faith is safe!:eek:

    Many churches (the organisation, not the building) have a whole sequence of "arguments" for any given faith. It generally boils down to a few simple ideas: the Bible is the one and only word of God; only by "believing in" Jesus can we gain salvation; they are right and you are wrong.

    I don't think anybody who is serious about their faith has anything to fear from your standard Evangelical; generally they lean on knowing their scripture well, and having a chapter and verse for every occassion. Unfortunately, they are seldom worth a serious conversation either: it's all about doctrine, dogma and other unpleasant words.

    Sikhs believe nobody has right to impose their beliefs on others or even to cajole members of other religions to convert. Such practices are strictly forbidden in Sikhism. Sikhs are required to defend the freedom of worship of other religions just as they would their own. Sikhs do not believe that followers of other religions are doomed in the eyes of God regardless of their personal character and behavior, nor does being born into a Sikh family guarantee salvation. However, this does not mean Sikhs view all religions as being similar. The philosophy, practice, and history of Sikhism are unique and seen as clearly distinct from any other religion.

    What you say, Vikram ji, is fundamental-- a basic truth. Why is this difficult for some to understand. Especially this, The philosophy, practice, and history of Sikhism are unique and seen as clearly distinct from any other religion.

    Good you repeat it.
