In a research paper do you have to answer the question in each paragraph or can you answer later on?

So I'm writing a research paper for the first time and the topic is "How does religion in people's lives differ today from the Middle Ages?". In my thesis I simply stated that it changes in many ways because I'm discussing lots of different points in the page (my teacher said this was ok). I was wondering if I have to already start answering the question in the paragraphs, comparing today and Middle Ages in each relating to a specific point, or if I could dedicate a section of the paper to talking about religion in the Middle Ages and another section to religion today, and there draw comparisons.
