Title
God Control: The Fourth Dimension
Abstract

Subscales assessing one'€™s belief in God control were integrated with the Multidimensional Locus of Control (LOC) scale (Levenson, 1974) and the Multidimensional Health LOC scale (Wallston, Wallston, & DeVellis, 1978). These two instruments assess internal, powerful others, and chance LOC. Data were presented supporting the reliability and validity of the God control subscales. Also, it was concluded that the failure to measure God control biases the assessment of internal LOC, and that the LOC advantage is associated with a high score on either the internal LOC dimension or the God control dimension.
