In her opening message to the BYU panel discussion of The Revelation of the Apostle John, Gaye Strathearn brings into the discussion Hermes as a viable example of interpreting sacred texts from God. Sacred texts are to be understood by direct communication with God through revelation and not through some alchemical mythical figure that does the interpreting for you.
Hermes comes from the false religious ideologies of the world and has no place within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This particle of leaven that Gaye Strathearn is inserting into the Church of God is exactly what Christ warned His disciples concerning during His New Testament ministry - "Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees" (Matt. 16:6).
