    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.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
