Spiritual growth is just as possible as tangible/physical (scientific) growth. Many times our spiritual selves hold on to beliefs that we think are based on the printed words of our sacred writings and from human perspective, but when our spiritual eyes are opened to see as (speaking as a Christian, of course) God sees things, then we have potential to grow...learning from our mistakes and developing.

Then again, there is the argument about "religion" and "spirituality." In that sense, "religion" seems far more rigid than "spirituality." Religion can be stifling toward growth if religion is based on preset declarations that may or may not support spiritual beliefs, and mistakes are not allowed to be explored, let alone learned from and developed.
