Also, now I want to build and play a Vatican Secret Service agent/combat exorcist.
I have a couple suggested edits for it, though. Some of this is technical and a bit pedantic, but I hope they make the final product better.
Second bullet: I would recommend changing it to "Jesus Christ is the Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary."
This ties it back to the wording of the Apostles and Nicene Creeds which many, if not most, Christians will be familiar with. It will just read right to them.
I did tweak this, but I do want to make clear I'm not writing a document for believers, so I'm not looking to replicate specific wordings of creeds, especially since different sects will have different wordings.
Fifth Bullet: Change Godhead to God. Godhead is a more technical term that I only see used in specific circumstances.
I did get the document checked by a religious scholar and this was the term she used, so I'll be keeping it as is.
Eighth Bullet: Judgment is misspelled.
Some words have multiple spellings. "Judgement" is one of them.
