Questions

From time to time I get asked questions about what a passage in the Scripture might mean.  I mentioned earlier that happened overseas as well as here in the past few weeks.  I also mentioned that I typically do not answer the questions, or I will answer the question with a question that is intended to help the one who asked me find the answer on their own.
Do you answer questions about the Bible?  Should you?  Thoughts at DTTB.
Why?

It is the old give a fish or teach to fish question.  It is not my first response.  It is easier to just give an answer.  I find I have to work harder to ask questions that help people discover for themselves.  Plus, when I do not answer them directly I risk their ire and I do not get credit for being a great resource.  But I may be equipping one in the process.
