comment How did Paul “see that someone had faith” in Acts 14?
We don't allow questions that are 'searching for a text', so I made a slight edit to focus this question on the specific text being asked about.

Good edit, @Joseph - I just changed the title to make it a question rather than a statement as well

comment What is the Godhead?
A literature review of ancient Greek literature's use of πλήρωμα τῆς Θεότητος would be a good start to understanding what Paul might have meant and what his original hearers would have understood, in addition to a word study on Θεότητος itself.

comment Women in Galatians
In fact, this question probably needs to be refocused on the meaning of the Galatians passage since we have elsewhere dealt with the Corinthians passage ad nauseam. I've made an edit to this effect.

comment Women in Galatians
Keep in mind that answers here should focus on the original context and stop short of prescribing contemporary practice. If you are looking for how this applies to Christians today, you would be best to ask on Christianity. See also Is 1 Corinthians 14:33-35 an interpolation? and What does the prohibition against women speaking in church in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 mean?

Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. Please keep in mind that this is not a Christian site. Be sure to check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. I've edited your question to focus it on the text.

comment What is the Godhead?
Indeed. I confess the original (unaltered) Nicene Creed every Sunday. That's not the point. The point is that you jumped straight to later historical Christian beliefs about a passage without first addressing it in its original linguistic, historical, and literary context. Explaining the Creed's position is fine so long as you've dealt with it in its original context first. And that context didn't even have the word Trinity yet - nor was the concept solidified.

comment What is the Godhead?
The point is to focus on what Paul would have meant when he originally wrote that, which was several hundred years prior to the council of Nicea. Also, what is ME in your first sentence?

"Except for truly exceptional situations, never allow the garnish to be larger than the meat and potatoes of an answer" (meta). "Opinions and tangents should be garnishes, not the entire meal. If a post is essentially an opinion-based argument or testimony, it doesn't fit and will need to be removed or edited" (meta). I've edited this to remove the tangential content.

@Vince comments are not the place to debate an answer. If you disagree, propose an alternate answer.

Please note that length is not an issue here, but preaching is.
