So far, the researches about belief in ajust world (BJW) have obtained many achievements in the fields of the behavior of punishing the victim, and the functions of building psychological well-being. There are researches indicated that there are links between religion and BJW especially with Ultimate Justice (Begue, 2002). But to the people who don't have a religion, which support his or her sense of BJW? So we use the participants from China, which don't have religion, and the participants from Indonesia, which are all religion believer to find the answer: The result shows that, both participants from the two countries have the same level of general BJW and social belief; while the Immanent and Ultimate BJW supernatural and pragmatic belief; the Indonesian participants score higher than Chinese participants. To the relationship between BJW and spiritual faith, Chinese participants' BUJ and general BJW are connected with social belief; while the Indonesian part shows the general BJW and Ultimate BJW are corresponded with all belief; and the Immanent BJW is related with Pragmatic Belief and Social Belief The scales we apply are the Just Word scale (Rubin & Peplau, 1973) and Belief in Immanent/Ultimate Justice Scale (Maes, 1999), both have good validity and reliability; and the scale ofspiritual belief (Song Xingchuan, 2004) to find out the difference between Indonesian and Chinese students, and we also use the classical "trolley problem", which is added the variable of obey or violate the norm, to estimate the extend of one concern about the social norm.
