We have become a club of exclusivity where no one is good enough. Not even God.
chas ve shalom - only comparison is that just as the eiruv rebelled against what Hashem taught, so their influence still lasts, especially on Jews who are ignorant of Torah, or gentiles trying to convert, so that they do not understand that our will must be under Hashem's and not His under ours - if we do His will, He will grant our wishes for goodness and blessing - if we go against His will, He does sometimes grant even that, but the consequences of this are not what we want. All of us are too small to go against the wisdom of Hashem handed down through mesorah through our history - that mesorah is not man-made, but in a direct line from the giving down of both the written and the oral Torah at Sinai. It is precisecly becuase every Jewish soul is so very precious that we need to ensure that conversion will not drag the convert into the dire consequences of not converting leshem Shomayim but for his self-interest. The regular path is made difficult to prevent tragedy for the converts.
