False Arcanist

You can disguise your miracles as arcane machinations.

Prerequisite(s): Ability to cast divine spells

Benefit(s): You are able to disguise your divine spellcasting, presenting it as arcane or magic of some other kind. Typically, this is as an alchemist, bard, sorcerer, or wizard magic, although other classes can be mimicked as well. You must make a skill check (DC 10 + twice the level of the spell) to disguise this casting and successfully cast the spell. The type of skill check depends on the type of caster you pretend to be: Craft (alchemy) for alchemist, Perform for bard, Knowledge (arcana) for sorcerer or wizard, and Knowledge (planes) for psychic or occultist are some examples. Using Spellcraft to identify the spell works normally, though unless the observer beats the DC by 10 or more, they don’t suspect the source of the magic is divine. You must still provide any divine focus components for the spells you cast. However, the divine focus doesn’t need to be an obvious symbol of his faith. It could be a small coin, tattoo, or garment bearing the symbol, whether presented openly, disguised, or hidden within a larger picture.
