Abstract:Findings indicate that students who have previously experienced a personal witness or conviction of their relationship with Deity are more prepared to confront the conflicts of secularization. Those who have higher levels of personal religiosity, personal community relationships, and religious capital, also experience less stress in reconciliation. Prior religious status shifts and turning points in ones life such as seminary, missionary service, and other covenantal experiences provide a significant boost to ones religious capital and personal conviction. In addition, student's who seek after prophetic counsel and who have positive relationships with ecclesiastical and religious educational leaders show greater religious commitment. The use of core teachings also demonstrate a higher level of religious commitment and leads to greater ecstatic and revelational type experiences with the God.
