Human attitudes, choices, experiences, and many factors influence the concept of, and with, the Holy Spirit. It is this human perspective the social science aspects of the Spirit can be investigated.

In an early to explain the importance of such within the field of psychology, (1996) presents a model some of the personal and professional of the filling of the Holy Spirit to aspects of Christian living.

It is unclear these results, however, one’s perceived level of regarding the Holy Spirit to one’s ability to be filled the Spirit. A reasonable investigation would be to compare subjects’ of spiritual well-being and spiritual with their responses on the Overall, it was hypothesized that with greater reported well-being and maturity would a greater perceived level of about their understanding of relationship with the Holy

While the HSQ is still considered to be an instrument, there are measures have been established as indicators of spiritual well-being and maturity. Specifically, Ellison (1982) Spiritual Well-Being (SWBS) has been established as a indicator of one’s sense of in relationship to God as well as one’s sense of life purpose and (Ellison, 1983).

The Holy Spirit

Ingram and Sandvik (1994) the HSQ as an exploratory instrument for measuring in attitudes and perceptions regarding the Spirit. The HSQ is a seven item Likert scale Likert A subjective scoring system allows a person being to quantify likes and preferences on a scale, with 1 being the important, relevant, interesting, ho-hum, or other, and 5 being excellent, yeehah important, etc with five points, range from strongly to strongly disagree. The HSQ is negatively meaning that its minimum score of seven indicates agreement with the items, its maximum score of 35 indicates the level of disagreement (the and format of the HSQ are displayed in the Appendix).

Spiritual Assessment Inventory

The SAI Edwards, 1996) was designed as a of spiritual maturity. The scale a more spiritual dimension of (awareness) as well as a more psychological dimension (relational which the authors argue is a component of spiritual maturity Edwards, 1996). In addition to the two dimensions, the current version of the SAI has factors: Awareness (A), Acceptance (RA), Disappointment Grandiosity (G), and Instability The SAI consists of 54 items, seven of are two part items. The items are on a point Likert scale ranges from Not at all true to true.

The alpha coefficients internal consistency for the SAI (A. 95; D. 90; RA. 83; G. 73; and I. 84) all indicate lower-bound estimates of scale (Hall Edwards, 1996). The SAI appears to have good validity as demonstrated by the correlational of the SAI subscales with the SWBS, the Revised, the Bell Object Inventory, Defense Styles and the Narcissistic Personality Noun 1. personality — personality by self-love and self-absorption; unrealistic about your own qualities and regard for others Inventory Edwards, 1996).

Multiple Correlations

Spiritual Well Being It was hypothesized that religious being (RWB) would be correlated with the total on the HSQ, whereas existential being (EWB) would Results indicate that the two were correlated (R = .428; df = 2, p = .000). Also, the Pearson for both EWB (r = -.325) and RWB (r = -.394) significant at the .01 alpha level.

Item Analyses. Since the HSQ is an instrument that probably a single construct, multiple equations were performed on of the seven items with the variables described above. As in Table 1, the multiple regression analysis reveals a significant between the SAI and each of the individual HSQ Also, only the Pearson for the scales RA and A were significant every HSQ question. Furthermore, the correlation of A was significant with question.

Regarding the SWBS, the regression correlational analysis a significant relationship between the and each of the HSQ questions (see 2). The Pearson correlations were at the .05 alpha level for both EWB and RWB for of the seven individual questions. The correlation for RWB was significant for five of the HSQ (1, 4-7) questions. The part for EWB was significant for the other two questions (2 3).


Holy Spirit In addition to the MRC, a one-way of variance (ANOVA) was performed to the mean total response on the HSQ for of the three groups in the study. The HSQ is scored, meaning that its total score of seven highest agreement with the whereas its maximum score of 35 the highest level of disagreement. The responses on the total HSQ for the Rosemead Biola (13.12), and Internet groups were compared a one-way analysis of variance The results indicate that the are indeed different with to their level of response on the HSQ (F = p = .000).

Therefore, an analysis of (ANOVA) was used to examine the of gender, denominational affiliation, and with response on the HSQ.

Reliability and Factor of the HSQ

Results show the alpha reflecting internal consistency to be and the split-half reliability coefficient to be When the HSQ was submitted to a factor the first Eigenvalue was over 3 and all were less than These results are consistent the Hurst (1995) study of the


This project is the known study to utilize the and the first to compare it to well measures. In the first examination of the the purpose was to establish its psychometric (Hurst, 1995). It appears those results that the HSQ a single factor, which is perceived level of knowledge the Holy Spirit. Ingram communication, August 15, 1997) to this assertion by stating it is intended to measure one’s in his/her perceived level of From these assertions the were derived that the HSQ be significantly correlated with of spiritual well being as well as spiritual awareness and maturity (SAI). No hypotheses formed regarding differences groups, and it was believed that variables would not be correlated responses on the HSQ.

As outlined the second questionnaire compared the HSQ was the Spiritual Assessment Inventory Overall, as expected, the SAI was significantly with the HSQ. Also as the A and RA scales were positively with the HSQ, while the D and I were negatively correlated. The G however, was predicted to be negatively but results indicate that it is correlated. The G scale is a measure of that is present in a person’s of their relationship with

The positive correlation between the G of the SAI and the HSQ scores demands careful It may appear that this is contraindicative of the assertion that the HSQ is measuring the level of confidence in understanding of the ministry and functioning of the Spirit. Alternatively, it is possible persons with a high of agreement with HSQ items be overly confident regarding relationship with God or engaging in degree of impression management, explaining the positive relationship of the HSQ and G However, according to the MRC analysis, the correlation of scale A accounted for of the variance in the SAI scores. Therefore, the of awareness of God’s presence the HSQ is the finding most worthy of

By definition, it would seem having knowledge of something require an awareness of it. As stated the HSQ seeks to assess the level of one has in her or his understanding of the function and ministry of the Spirit. However, when alone, it is unclear whether the that one has regarding the Holy translates into the capacity to be with or empowered by Him. The A on the SAI seems to address that somewhat by asking such as I have a sense of how God is working in my and I have a strong impression of presence. These SAI questions specific experiential ex·pe·ri·en·tial

This relationship awareness (SAI A scale) and (HSQ) can only be seen as with regard to the HSQ, as it goes beyond the single dimension construct on which all of the HSQ loaded. Expanding the HSQ to include experientially state focused (we items is under consideration for studies with the HSQ, could also potentially some complement to the more trait-oriented focus of the SAI.

It was that the undergraduate students at University would have the level of agreement with the HSQ One factor worthy of consideration is this group is composed of the participants (ages 18-22). people in this age group are at the level of separating from and home and undergoing identity (Arnstein, 1984; Blos, According to Erickson (1968), college students defend the uncertainty and self-doubt they when undergoing individuation

It is also that the positive correlation of the SAI G scores with the HSQ reflect degree of defensive impression associated with the G scale.

unexpected finding worthy of is that the Rosemead students had higher scores on the D scale of the SAI either of the other two groups. D is of disappointment in God and is composed of statements indicate feelings of disappointment, anger, and betrayal Betrayal

Additionally, the students experienced significantly levels of religious well (RWB) than either of the two groups.

The data indicate the Rosemead students are more in their relationship with God and lower levels of religious being. This statement is supported by the fact that the students scored significantly on the Lie (L) scale of the SAI than the Biola The L scale, which is still to be experimental, purports to measure high levels of one’s and behavior.

Indeed, of the undergraduates skipped all of the questions on the D then rated the questions on the RA (which immediately follow the D questions) at a high level. The age level (and assumed of Rosemead students combined the personal self examination in doctoral level clinical could account for the higher D and A, RA, and L scores.

Similarly, the group is not necessarily less than the Rosemead group; they may be making a more naive — Untutored in the of some particular program or one who still tries to do things in an way, rather than the way (in really good designs coincide, but most designs really good in the appropriate report of their opinions. In case, this view not account for the fact that was no significant difference in the level of reported between Biola and the Internet students. It seems the Internet students would be like the Rosemead students the Biola students, given the that both are graduate in psychology.

Upon closer examination, the students are different from the two groups in several ways. all the Internet subjects indicated they considered themselves to be only seven of the sixteen that they would go to because Jesus Christ on a cross for their sins, is the generally accepted Christian and was the response of all Rosemead and Biola The other nine Internet marked different responses, as a loving God would not send to hell. The seven subjects who with the standard Christian were, on the average, seven younger than the Rosemead (mean age of 35), indicating they may be engaged in a different or developmental crisis. The remaining Internet students were on four years younger the Rosemead students.

As in the results section, the hypotheses about the whole sample generally supported. It was expected the religious well being scale on the SWBS would be correlated with the HSQ. The RWB reportedly measures a sense of being in relation to God. It is that people who are confident in understanding of the ministry and function of the Spirit also experience a sense of well being in to God.

the majority of the hypotheses were in this study, the investigation have been improved in ways. One difficulty encountered in the results of this study as a result of the uneven nature of the The Biola group was much (n = 93) than the other two groups (Rosemead, n = 24; Internet, n = 16). A for future studies is to seek a diversity among subjects, with regard to age. One of this study is that the of the HSQ has been reversed so that it is now scored. This change ease the analysis of data the HSQ with other inventories as the SAI and SWBS.

Finally, the meanings of findings in this study ambiguous. It seems that a thorough spiritual history of could address some of the raised. Included in this detailed spiritual history be an assessment of how much formal and/or theological education the has had (such as approximate number of or credits). It may also be appropriate to the HSQ so that it contains multiple that address issues than knowledge, possibly an experiential component and its relationship to and confidence regarding the filling of the Spirit. Questions that address how one perceives the we mode of (Ingram, 1996) could be helpful. Perhaps such could clarify why the Rosemead reported lower levels of well being, greater of disappointment in God, and a lower level of confidence in their of the ministry and functioning of the Holy The present study essentially a pilot project in a new area.
