"Spirituality" has always declined when organised religion got their way. Dogma becomes then untouchable and one is not allowed to question it in any way. Therefore one has had the Spanish iquisition, the Taliban, Osama Bin Laden, etc. Even our scientific community is succumbing to protecting scientific dogma instead of welcoming new ideas; and analysing them objectively. There can be no personal spiritual life if you are not allowed to question and to analyse. It is thus highly doubtful that Christianity has sustained us for 2000 years or that Islam is now "winnning" the spiritual battle. Christian countries at least allow their citizen's to convert to Islam if they want to. In Islamic countries you are killed when you convert from Islam to Christianity. Is this winning the battle for sprituality?
