Sikhism, or known in Punjabi as Sikhi, is a monotheistic religion founded during the 15th century in the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent, by Guru Nanak and continued to progress through the ten successive Sikh gurus. It is the fifth-largest...  organized religion in the world, with approximately 30 million adherents. Punjab, India is the only state in the world with a majority Sikh population.Adherents of Sikhism are known as Sikhs. According to Devinder Singh Chahal, "The word 'Sikhi' gave rise to the modern anglicized word 'Sikhism' for the modern world." Gurmat means literally 'wisdom of the Guru' in contrast to Manmat, or self-willed impulses.According to Sewa Singh Kalsi, "The central teaching in Sikhism is the belief in the concept of the oneness of God." Sikhism considers spiritual life and secular life to be intertwined. Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru established the system of the Langar, or communal kitchen, in order to demonstrate the need to share and have equality between all people. Sikhs also believe that "all religious traditions are equally valid and capable of enlightening their followers"   more

Isn't Sikhism a Dharmic religion?

Sikhs prefer to associate with being the "neutral" one

This not a very good way of splitting religion apart

Religion is against the bible. Alahym did not give us religion. HE gave us laws/commandments to keep and to follow. Religion is based off of the Holy Bible. All religions have take scripture from the Israelites Holy Bible, twisted and perverted that scripture, and came up with that religion. Essentially, religion is worshiping other gods, not The Creator of all. So if you want to join a cult, that is up to you because that is basically what religion is, a cult!

Today's Christianity is a religion. Religion has nothing to do with the Bible!
