I'm curious as to why someone would acknowledge that God tells them differently via The Bible, but knowingly disobeys? Why bother to try and have a relationship at all with Jesus? The whole point of having a relationship with the Lord is to please Him and gain eternal life. And yet, this statement totally goes against that. Is the concept that one part of the Bible is more important than others? Curiouser and curiouser.
Have you ever mentioned a doctrine or even a lifestyle rule to a person and had them reply with "Don't put God in a box?". I hate it when people do that. What they are doing is inventing their own Gods when they disregard what the bible says and make God be what they want Him to be.

(They are not gods which are made with hands.)
The typical reply I get around here (work) when I talk about lifestyle rules or doctrine, is that there is no right and wrong. Right and wrong are based on what the society finds acceptable. I've stopped having those conversations; I'm not real fond of beating my head against a wall. I know that there is a right and wrong, because God told me there's a right and wrong, and he never changes. People who don't believe in God cannot be convinced there are absolutes.
I'm not even sure I know what it means to not "put God in a box".
