I don't have Holy Text so I can't understand what the problem is... what does Holy Text say. From your post I'm guessing it's to add 2d4 to a check but which one?

It says add 2d4 to your non combat devine check. I would have thought using Holy Light was a combat devine check. And it was a boost to the spell, not a boost to recharge.

That's interesting  because I think there's a general issue with Divine Checks and effects that add dice to non-combat Divine Checks. I've noticed that I can use Blessings for Wisdom or Charisma (depending on Character) to attempt Divine Checks vs Villains (can't for the life of me remember which Villain though). I remember being surprised that the Check didn't count as a Combat Divine check, but put it down to my lack of understanding of what constituted a Combat Divine Check vs. a non-Combat Divine Check. (Myself, I'd have thought that any check listed in the top right corner of a non-Barrier Bane would be a Combat Check, but - as I say - maybe that's my misunderstanding).

 

I'll keep an eye out for instances of this issue and report back with screenies if I can.

A check is a combat check only when it says so. So any check against bane that don't say combat, is not a combat check.

For example Satyr check is a dexterity check, not a combat. So any normal Divine check against bane is noncombat Divine check.

Yeah, but if the app lets you use Holy Light on a check, that's definitely a Combat check.

 

And you shouldn't be able to use cards that boost non-combat checks.  (You could still play a blessing that adds 2 dice to non-combat checks, but it should only add 1 die.)

It's possible that the card is "misprinted" and that effect is what is supposed to be... but going with card "as printed" Holy Text should not work with Holy Light.
