Over the years Bob felt so blessed to be able to help Christians think through issues and ideas from a Christian worldview, especially those who were in school (Christian or secular). He saw helping students with papers as a ministry to the teacher as well as the student. He always gave a warning, however, "If I help you with your paper, you will understand the subject better than 99 percent of the population, and you will learn more about the subject than you would every otherwise, but you might not get a good grade if your professor is more interested in your regurgitating his wisdeom than in actually acquiring knowledge."
Answers In Action remains willing to help others as they entertain and examine the arguments, ideas, and claims that are all a part of representing our Lord in this perishing world. All of our staff are trained by Bob and me and we all hold the same commitment to God's truth in God's Word communicated persuasively and rationally.
: I met Bob at Willow Creek and I was fascinated by his passion and his brain. But what really blew me away was his willingness to help. In college I took a philosophy of ethics class and I was the only one who chose the “Dive Command” theory of morality. I called Bob Passintino to help me write a paper to justify a Biblical basis for morality. He spent over an hour giving me sound ideas to base my position on. My professor acknowledged that my paper was the most sound logically and that I had proven my point.
: Thanks for the help Bob!
