Modernizing is spiritual suicide for religions
Religion cannot keep up with the times. There is a good reason why all theist religions struggle to keep up with technological, scientific and social progress (or why most of them don’t even try), and that is because it is in their very nature. A religion keeping up with the times implicitly surrenders its supernatural status, and consequently its own raison d’être. Knowing this it should come as no surprise that religions have been ignoring and attempting to sabotage progress for centuries. For religions, modernizing equals spiritual suicide.
