Because a devotee's feats will allow him to do things (like, say, Leap Over Trees, or Run Over Water) which are normally "impossible", where an initiate's affinities only give him a (small) augment to a mundane skill and, when using feats, your resistance is often only 14 instead of the tree's "Tall 13w4".

It is by my order and for the good of the state that the bearer of this has done what he has done.
