Thomas touched His wounds and said, "My Lord and my God!" Is this idol worship? I understand that it is a non-issue for non-Christians. What do professing Christians say?

Thank you graceinus!
Interesting lone77star! Can you explain "enlightened son?" I have thought about Thomas' statement as an exclamation; however, that wouldn't explain other passages like the Son's part in creation and My Father and I are one. Came back to earth?
Yeah I know. Thank you Hot Rod!
Hi Marcus! So where does He figure in the concept and worship of God?
The concept is really simple, the Father needed someone to come, He asked Jesus, who refused but later changed His mind and came! Christ always spoke on being sent! Now if He was sent there must be Greater, which is the FATHER! And He pleases GOD!
So Marcus where does He fit into the concept of worship. Is he supernatural? Is he an angel? Where was He sent from?
You can call Him supernatural, because in human form He did things that in nature no one can do! He is not an angel! He fits into worship, because the FATHER commended all things into His hands, and when He is rejected, there is no help!
Revolutionary philosopher? So would that mean He was not born of a virgin and had a finite exists? Thank you for your perspective Billie.
You're very gracious Diane. This is a GREAT question, and I love the words of Jesus, but of course, I'm a lover of words. The rest is superfluous to me.
Thank you Billie! I must admit I'm trying to come up with a question that will have people talking for a while. I've seen some threads go on for months. I mean "existence" not exists. I'm sorry my motive is self serving. Is it obvious? :-(
