Patrilineal Descent

Shalom Aleikum,

The Torah seems pretty clear that both tribal affiliation and religious status follows the father’s bloodline. Why did the Rabbis decided to change the laws as to how religious status is passed down and why are Patrilineal Jews often not accepted even though the Torah (God’s Word) is clear?

Thank you!
