To give people an excuse by putting the blame on church leadership seems like an invitation to them to continue doing nothing of their own free will. When Paul reminds us that in the Father and Christ are 'hid all treasures of wisdom and knowledge" can we really blame the church if we don't seek out these treasures? Can we blame the church if we don't feast upon his words or search his words? No. While I agree with your analysis I don't agree that we can excuse our own ignorance. To so criticize is to put our trust (or lack of it) in the arm of flesh.

I've been thinking about my last comment and perhaps I missed that you were saying to us, don't rely on the church (as an organization). It will not help us learn what we must learn. That is between us and God. On this I agree that it is not rely criticism, but warning.
