At times, the question is not meant to elicit an answer but to get somebody to think about something.

I must admit evidence was piling up pretty heavy in my direction. 

However, I have a question of my own. Am I responsible for every noise
and suspicious activity that goes on in the middle of the night? And, 
could it be that I am positively innocent of these covert charges laid 
against me? Isn't a person presumed to be innocent until found guilty? 
And, does a husband qualify as being a person? 

I am never good at answering questions. For example, my wife once asked
me, "Are you acting like a fool?" 

Without even thinking, I responded by saying, "I'll have you know I'm
not acting." 

Jesus was good at asking questions. His questions usually got to the
heart of the issue. He once asked Peter a very serious question. 
"Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these?" (John 21:15). 

Peter, being the kind of person he was, thought he knew the answer when
he really did not understand the question. 

Finally, after the third time, Peter surrendered to the Lord. "Peter was
grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he 
said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love 
thee." (John 21:17). 

At times, the question is not meant to elicit an answer but to get
somebody to think about something.
