spirituality scale, religiosity scale

in non-Christian and non-U.S. samples (e.g., Kark et al., 1996; Krause et al., 2002; Piedmont & Leach, 2002).

As Glicksman correctly notes, researchers immersed in American culture
may mistake ideas embedded in American culture as “natural” parts of RS(religious and spiritual).
His critique directs our attention to five themes that he says appear
“throughout” several scales that he reviewed: the importance and value of
(1) nature; (2) forgiveness; (3) a personal relationship with God; (4) private
scriptural study and prayer; and (5) suffering as holding redemptive meaning(in context of justification by faith)
