The Ariel Soap Rumour & Isaiah 29? by Nobody: 8:23am On Aug 23, 2013
This may sound funny.

Couple of years ago, In fact it’s close to 20 years ago(in the late 90s) that I was in my grandma's place and a pastor came to pray for the family and after praying, he decided to share the word of God with the family.

He took his bible and told everyone to read Isaiah 29 which centered on the curse placed on the city of Ariel. He then convinced us not to use Ariel detergents any longer.

To be candid, I don’t know if the family heeded back then or not. Yesterday again,, i was studying and then flipped to Isaiah 29 and recalled the incident of close to 20 years ago and laughed.

But seriously is there any correlation between the Ariel city cursed in the bible and Ariel detergent by Procter & Gamble.
Someone once told me years ago that Procter & Gamble claimed that they give certain % of their earnings to the devil/Satan. How true or how false, i don't know.

To have an idea of how long this is, see the below article

Here’s proof that you can't stop an urban legend, not even in a court of law.

In 1997, Procter & Gamble filed the most recent in a series of lawsuits against Amway Corporation and several of its distributors for allegedly spreading rumors to the effect that P&G, maker of familiar household products such as Mr. Clean and Tide laundry detergent, is affiliated with the Church of Satan.

Here's what the bible says


Isaiah 29


King James Version (KJV)

29 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.

2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel.

3 And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee.

4 And thou shalt be brought down , and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.

5 Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.

6 Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.

7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.

8 It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.


My questions are

1) Did you hear about the rumour back then?
2) If you did, what was your reaction?
3) Is there truly a correlation between the Ariel in the bible and that of P&G?
4) Why did P&G choose the brand name Ariel as against any other non controversial brand name?

This thread is just for discussion.

"For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God, even as the waters cover the sea." There is no harm in doing a bit of research even as a Christian. I may have to study that portion of the Holy Bible very well because I do not wish to be seen as supporting the work of satan by buying satanic products.

I will try to answer your questions...

1) The rumors linking the company and her CEOs to the church of satan is a old has the history of corruption in Nigeria. These rumors started outside of Nigeria and have moved from one continent to continent. These rumors to some extent no longer bothers the company.
I have always taken my time to educate those who have been bold enough to pop this questions at me.
In the past 20 years P&G has had about 5 or 6 CEOs, so I will ask you, do you know their names? Which one among them attends the church of satan? The rumors have largely been peddled by the competitors and willing superstitious people. I am sure you remember when it was rumored that a popular Indomie noddle brand was killing children, we all knew the stories came from a rival noddle company.

2) When i heard these rumors, i took my time to research the circumstances surrounding the issues. Not that i was jobless but because I earn my living there.

3) I will leave you to belief what you think here. I can't possibly see the link between Ariel, a city in ancient Israel with a 21st century product that delivers superior cleaning power far above its competitors. You will also find out that Ariel, a Hebrew word, also means the angel of God. Note the capital G in the God.

4) Why did P&G choose Ariel as a brand name? You make me laugh. Are they suppose to consult Nigerians or Christians before naming their product? Are you aware that a Nigerian company once named another detergent "Global Ariel" Are you also aware that there are close to 300 products made by P&G globally and with different names?

Brand wars are fought everywhere in the world and mudslinging in these wars are common, I will close with the words of the holy book, "Prove all things: hold fast that which is good or true."

Nigerian Pastors Thrive by Keeping Members in a State of Fear and Dependence.
So they keep returning to them.

They'd tell you your entire family and friends are bewitching you, so you leave people who would talk sense to you and pay everything you've worked hard for to them as "Protection Money"

There's hardly a Pastor that would encourage you to search the Bible, Pray and Grow in the Word.

I think this is another of the fear tactics

That's just a misconception. Ariel has nothing to do with satan its just a ploy to bring down the company by some unknown companies.

@OP I believe the pastor is 100% right . If you check the bible very well you will notice that their was only two Saul mentioned in the bible .

The first was a king in the old testament and he ended up his life in a devilish way which made God turned his back against him.

The second was a Saul in the new testament that always attack the Christians and even murder them , When God(Jesus) appeared to him at Damascus .

He didn't only become a change person but God changed his name to Paul . Meaning God didn't like the later name anymore.

Name is very important and it means a lot of things , since it was once mentioned in the bible that ariel city was cursed , I believe anything that has that name also bears the curse .

I use Ariel since so many years and we here in Europa have a product test and it is always the best what you can take.

You know the disney movie for Kids that has also the name Ariel.

that has nothing to do with religion.

Nigerians are just too
supersticious.

What's the business between a soap and something that happened years ago in the bible.

As far as am concerned, it, just a brand name.

Well, thats the nature of being a human being, you can't tell what is true or false, you depend on infomation. The innocent have been found guilty and the guilty have escaped punishment. Facts can be twisted by brilliant aguement.

Anyway rumours usually have elements of truth.

Ariel is another name for Yerusalem , temporarily the city is under a curse until its redeemed by Christ , as per Procter n Gamble we know the owner is member of the illuminati, but the soap has not nothing to do with city of Ariel
