Ryle is a man who wrote many books and pamphlets and sermons that are as powerful and relevant today as they were in the 19th century. His description of jellyfish Christianity could as easily have been written here in the 21st century.

[Dislike of dogma] is an epidemic which is just now doing great harm, and specially among young people. It produces what I must venture to call a “jelly-fish” Christianity in the land: that is, a Christianity without bone, or muscle, or power. A jelly-fish is a pretty and graceful object when it floats in the sea, contracting and expanding like a little, delicate, transparent umbrella.

Amos 8:11,12.
The very sad state of the church today.
May we seek the LORD in repentance and turn from our wicked ways.
Yes, as the text beside the clock on the anglican church building in Sidmouth, Devon says: "It is time to seek the Lord".

How about also Paul Washer, Tim Conway, Bob Jennings, Voddie Baucham, Eric Ludy, Kenny Balwin, Carter Conlon or in the area I live in Jim Murphy.

Thankfully God has His remnant of preachers who are not bowing the knee to the religion of the celebrities Balaams of our day (Baal Peor). They might not be Leonard Ravenhills or Duncan Campbells but they are still men God can use as He sees fit. And I trust He does see fit.

Everyone should read this whole article. Ryle was correct in his assessment of those who will not cling to the sharp truth of systematic theology. It is certainly true that a lot of "preaching" is merely a litany of jelly donut sweet anecdotes and not the sword of the Spirit sermons humbly, but courageously, given by those who revere the Lord.
