I actually initially stumbled upon this website while seeking an answer to a question that I posed to a friend. My friend was raised a Sikh but, spending most of his childhod in England, Christianity was taught in the schols and his family was not overly devout so he was unable to answer. Incidentally, I have not yet found the answer but ..... I am loving the deep, well written discussions an the wealth of information here. I am learning a great deal from all of you and the faith that has intrigued me for a long time is becoming much more captivating as I learn. So, back to my question: Is there, in the Sikh philosophy, a dark force to counter the light of God? Christianity has Satan, the total opposite of God's goodness. Is it possible to not have a dark side to balance the light? Like the theory of relativity states that every action must have an equal opposite reaction must not every good have an equal bad? I would appreciate any information. :angeldevil: thanks!
