The truths found in the Sikh religion are revealed in the lives of its followers.  Sikhs (“Disciples”) fulfill the summation found in Micah 6:8: “He has shown you, O man, what is good.  And what does Yahuwah require of you?  But to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your Eloah.”  Sikhs are peace-loving people who actively look for ways to do well by their fellow man, treating friends and enemies, men and women, alike.  They worship one supreme, self-existent Creator God whose spirit is present throughout the universe and daily meditate upon His name.

There are, however, a couple of errors in Sikhism:

  1. Reincarnation (samsara) which contradicts the Creator’s statement that men die but once, not repeatedly: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”  (Hebrews 9:27-28); and,
  2. Conditions in one’s next life are dependent upon the works performed in the present life – a form of salvation by works.  This again contradicts the Creator’s statement: “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of [the Creator], not of works, lest anyone should boast.  (Ephesians 2:8, 9, NKJV)

Despite the beautiful understanding Sikhs have about the character of the only Creator, they are hampered from entering into full communion with Him because of the error that is entwined with the truths they do have.  Sikhs correctly reject the pagan doctrine of the trinity, but in doing so they go too far and reject the Creator's son.  [Note: The Bible makes plain that Yahushua, while born of a virgin, is a human being - not a diety.]  Thus, Sikhs fail of achieving their deepest spiritual desire by rejecting the very means which the Creator has supplied for people to become One with Him:

Yahushua the Annointed of Nazareth . . . whom El raised from the dead . . . is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’  Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.  (Acts 4:10-12)

“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true Deity,and Yahushua the Annointed whom You have sent.”  (John 17:3)

The Sikh name for the Creator means Wondrous Light That Dispels Darkness.  But the very means by which the Creator dispels darkness is through revealing to mankind His character as seen in the life of His only begotten Son:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with the Deity, and the Word was Deity.  He was in the beginning with Deity.  All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.  In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.  (See John 1:1-5.)

The oneness with the Creator for which Sikhs yearn and seek can be found only through fully embracing the complete truths of Heaven.  The Creator invites His Sikh children to set aside the errors of their religion and step into a close, intimate relationship with Him, which alone will fulfill their deepest hearts’ desires.
