I don't condone adding Dvine outside of Mystical without the GM's permission. Yes, I agree that it is the GM's ruling if he would allow an extra power source into the game. Otherwise you will have to go with: Mystical / Divine / Occult as one lumped power source.

In the game I am running, the power sources are as follows:
Alien (Tech and Phys)
Mystical / Divine
Mutation (altered human)
Atlantean Technology

Atlanean Technology is similar to Super-Science except: Super-Science is based off of Physics and Science while Altlanean Technology was developed from other origins, and kind of convergently evolved until it resembled Super-Science. However, something that neutralizes Super-Science would have no effect on the Atlantean version.

This was created because my campaign is based on that Atlantis rose from the depths from the seas of the Earth. A new 'radiation' is seeping from Atlantis causing mutations worldwide. So Atlantean technology makes sense to add to my game, while Divine makes less sense. In conclusion, if it fits the GM's concept, DO IT!

One very simple way to add a little God born might would be something akin to Samson and his hair. If youre looking for a simple way to have God's presence felt add a simple ban to the character; don't cut your hair, don't eat meat on Sunday, that sort of thing. It could be a flaw on the power set or a weaknes depending on what happens to the character if the ban is broken.
I sometimes wonder if I've ever made a smart decision.
