This happened on the 17th in a devotional broadcast from SLC to mormons in Kansas and Oklahoma. It was covered in the Church News; I'm not going to bother to provide a link.
Per the CN synopsis, Nelson said that the BOM isn't a *textbook*. This isn't a new position at all, as he said the exact same thing back in 2016.https://www.exmormon.org/phorum/read.php?2,1840830
This talking point is one way for the church to wave off the anachronisms and glaring omissions in the BOM. Those pesky details like no evidence of horses or chariots or swords or mighty cities don't matter because this isn't a textbook.
Wendy's devotional message was more annoying and culty. She "invited" listeners to "study, and study again" *all 31* of Nelson's GC addresses since he became Prez. Leader worship much?
