Why You Should STOP Saying this Word

July 31, 2021

This was such an important topic for me to cover that I even went out of my way to make a video about it. I even through in some short clips for social media channels. This is something that needs to be said and understood if you value kratom and desire it to be or remain legal.

Stop saying user.

“I am a kratom user.”

“If you are a user of kratom…”

“When you use kratom….”

Do you say that you “use Sam E” supplements? Do you say “I’m a user of chamomile tea”? You never say “I use Prozac for my mood”.

No!

You TAKE kratom. You CONSUME kratom. You DRINK kratom. The term “user” has a very negative connotation.

Three years into a spiritual revamp sparked by a voice she believed was her deceased mother’s, Shaunna reconsiders her understanding of life, God, and spirituality. Gripped by the loss and familial strife, she hears a voice urging her to acknowledge mistakes. This revelation kickstarts her quest for truth, leading her to question and ponder the biblical underpinnings of the Trinity doctrine. She discovers that while the Trinity isn’t explicitly outlined in Scripture, the Bible’s teachings imply this complex unity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a cornerstone of her faith’s doctrine.

What is the “Divine Council”?

Several biblical texts describe a “divine council” of celestial beings who serve God and engage in decision-making, known as “sod.” These beings, while diverse, are depicted as subordinate to the Creator. Prophets sometimes access “sod” for divine revelations. Scriptures such as 1 Kings 22, Isaiah 6, and Jeremiah 23 illustrate this concept, differentiating true prophets who witness these councils from false ones. Psalm 82 and Amos 3:7 further highlight the council’s role in divine plans, as does the Book of Job.
