MAAT

A Word About Maat...

Maat is the basis of Wo'se Community Church's theology. Maat is the totality of all existence. (Please see Dr. O'Benga's 25 dimensions of Maat chart below).

In the Individual Maat manifests itself as Truth. In Society Maat manifests itself as Justice and is against injustice. Maat manifests itself in nature as the normalcy of phenomenon, i.e. The seasonal cyclical changes. The Sun rising and setting and the Moon's 28,29 day cycle etc.
