Personally, I don't see Empire's decline as some sort of spurn by the divine, but more like the natural decline of large imperial states. Like the Roman Empire, the Empire of Cyrodill just can't cope with the stresses of governing such a massive continent anymore. If the Dominion manages to conquer Tamriel and form their own empire, it'll probably happen to them at some point too.
