ABOUT US

The Humanistic Temple of Alkebulan is a spiritual center of learning in the sense of African Humanism.

WHAT IS GOD?

The word God, in the concept of rational thought is the actualization of the divine as the ideal or perfect state of goodness. It is the embodiment of being virtuous and in harmony with nature and the universe. In a scientific view, God is LIFE. That life force energy that exists throughout the universe. The energy that gives us the power of thought, free will, and the tools to address human problems.

CORE BELIEFS

Serving God means to devote one's time, and energy to the highest good and the application of all creative human resources (science, art, literature and social action) to bring about a world of freedom, justice, peace, and absence of suffering, in oneness with nature.

VIRTUES

There is no sin, nor is there evil. There are virtues and vices. To aspire to the greater good, is to embody the universal virtues of humanity. To be evil is to embody the vices and dwell out of harmony with nature. To adhere to the 20 Virtues of the Temple Code will bring about an immediate good.

The Humanistic Temple of Alkebulan is significant in terms of the name.  The Humanistic Temple of Alkebulan is an afrocentric religious order similar to Spiritual Humanism. Spiritual Humanism is based on the ability of humans to solve human problems using science, reason, or logic. Spiritual Humanism simply focuses on the natural, not supernatural world, and what can be proven through science or even empirical evidence. The question of what is supernatural is irrelevant, not rejected. Spiritual Enlightenment is sought by defining what God is, and is not. Seeking God in the rational concept of the ultimate good is accomplished by embodying the 20 universal virtues of the Temple Code.

Alkebulan, the original name of the known African continent, means "Mother of Mankind". We recognize there is a greater need to specifically embrace, educate, inspire, and empower the people of Alkebulan and their descendants, while embracing some of its many cultures and traditions that are in harmony with nature and natural order.

 

While the focus of the Humanistic Temple of Alkebulan is its diaspora, the institution accepts all who are willing to accept the ideals of this institution and tenets of Temple Code. Members or potential members may join us and participate or learn from our social media platforms or website.
