I see three issues with the revised path that make me hesitate.
First, it grants a feat at step one. That's okay, but I usually avoid doing that. In general I feel that if you can figure out a unique benefit, or a bonus that stacks with others, that is a better first level step. Just as an example, if you take the Path of Life but already have the Bandage feat, you get a bonus Gear feat, which is strange. If you take Blessed (Path of Life)... well, you spend a feat to get a feat. I think if a feat is really appropriate, that's okay. In this case, I think the feat, in general, probably works with your concept. I can give it a pass, but my inclination would be to make it step II or III. If you get a redundant feat, you gain a bonus Spellcasting feat, which is in the right ballpark.
Second, it's possible to gain the ritual weapon of another Alignment, even if you don't have a ritual weapon. Also, you aren't spelling out of this is the Priest's acolyte ability or what. Are you gaining a second physical weapon? Or does this just widen the tricks you can do Ritual Weapon tricks with?
Third, what if Path of the Gods is your only Path at present? In that case Devotion Basics is a wasted ability. I think any Path that grants Devotion Basics must include an ability that it works with at a previous Step.
