How would someone ask a question about the evidence for 1st century Church history on C SE while allowing New Testament documents to be cited, since New Testament documents are the bulk of evidence we have for 1st century Church history?
This is a dicey issue since most Christians believe that the NT Letters are the Word of God but plenty of us don't believe that they're open to private interpretation. As such, the authority of the interpreter comes into play.
At the very least you can't just quote scripture, you have to quote what someone (ancient or modern) says about scripture. Then people can just your answer to the question based on the authority of your quotation.
All things not being equal, this means that your're going to have to have a scholarly answer to a question that is not particularly dogmatic.
These kinds of things are handled better on BH.SE anyway, which is why we expect most questions to have a dogmatic or doctrinal answer and be specifically asking for that.
