Why is answering my own question considered as blocking others from answering it? After all, an option to "Answer your question" is offered.


Your question is not clear, but becomes clearer with your own answer which coincided, more or less, with your own question. You seem to be excluding other users from your own process. – Nigel J Nov 12 at 9:25

What did Paul believe about 1 Corinthians 10:4 with regards to the teaching about bread from heaven, spiritual food?

1 Answer 1


The question should be self-contained, so that anyone can answer it. If your question is unclear in itself, and is clarified only by your accompanying answer, then it's a poor question, and should be edited to improve.

Answering your own question is perfectly acceptable, but you need to be careful not to skimp on question quality. The question will be judged as a question in itself, independent of your accompanying answer.

  • What is unclear about it?

  • I think the problem is not that the question is unclear, but that it is off-topic. Asking what Paul believed about something, especially if he didn't explicitly state so, is a "truth question". "Truth questions" are off-topic on this site. See christianity.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/3527/…
