Direct your complaint to Christ. He started it.

The only complaint I have is with the leaders who failed to learn to show themselves approved by revising their understanding of Christ's early "milk" that was constrained to the primitive beliefs, superstitions and lack of knowledge of our ancestors at the time. The leaders learned nothing and deliberately retained the ancient ignorance (milk) as a sign of faith in God despising any advances in knowledge for over 2000+ years. You are perpetuating it as well.

Your misunderstanding of the law of God is directly related to your lack of wisdom.

Proverbs 2:1-15

My child, if you accept my words and treasure my commands,
making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding;
if you indeed cry out for insight, and raise your voice for understanding;
if you seek it like silver, and search for it as for hidden treasures—
then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk blamelessly
guarding the paths of justice and preserving the way of his faithful ones.
Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path;
for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
prudence will watch over you; and understanding will guard you.
It will save you from the way of evil,
from those who speak perversely,
who forsake the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness,
who rejoice in doing evil and delight in the perverseness of evil;
those whose paths are crooked, and who are devious in their ways.
