My ELCA cubie handles all bible disagreements exactly like this. Absolutely zero interest in persuing a doctrinal difference at all. She is much more content talking about favorite hymns or church buildings and will just turn away whenever I make a statement from the bible that offends her.
That's interesting. Time will tell why God put the two of you in the same cubicle.
Long before I believed, I shared an office for a couple years with a fundamentalist Bible thumper. Many years later, our paths crossed and I had the pleasure of telling him I got saved in the interim. We had quite a good laugh about how, so many years earlier, the perceived odds of that ever happening would have been nil.
Praise the Lord that He doesn't reason the way we do.
