It does not appear you are applying that statement at all, except that you want particular verses to support your view.
However, Thomas addressing Jesus with the expression, "My Lord, and my God" would not contradict scripture, where Thomas recognizes Jesus as the Messiah who has the role of Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
Suppose we even were to go along with what you claim, there is absolutely no scriptural support for it.
If Thomas was referring to Jesus as Almighty God, which clearly he was not, then he was wrong. He would have had to be a disciple who was always absent when Jesus was teaching, and arrived when everything was said. Hence was clueless.
However, we know that was not the case.
The simple fact is, none of the apostles, believed Jesus to be almighty God. They were never taught that, and they never had that view. They understood Jesus to be whom he said he was - the son of God, not equal to, but lesser than the father.
Jesus taught them, “I am ascending to my Father and your Father and to my God and your God,”
But these have been written down so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and because of believing, you may have life by means of his name.
John 20:i7, 30, 31
That is what scripture says.
Let's continue from that statement.
Are you sure you used the correct scripture?
I don't see that in Colossians 2:8. That is not what scripture says.
Rather, it says, "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."
The spirit of God is not the father.
There are too many scriptures to quote here, but...
1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that the spirit of God dwells in you?
1 Peter 4:14 If you are being reproached for the name of Christ, you are happy, because the spirit of glory, yes, the spirit of God, is resting upon you.
Matthew 3:16, 17 16 After being baptized, Jesus immediately came up from the water; and look! the heavens were opened up, and he saw God’s spirit descending like a dove and coming upon him. 17 Look! Also, a voice from the heavens said: “This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved.” See Isaiah 11:2
Matthew 12:28 But if it is by means of God’s spirit that I expel the demons, the Kingdom of God has really overtaken you.
Luke 11:20 But if it is by means of God’s finger that I expel the demons, the Kingdom of God has really overtaken you.
Acts 2:1-4, 17, 18, 32, 33
1 Now while the day of the Festival of Pentecost was in progress, they were all together at the same place. 2 Suddenly there was a noise from heaven, just like that of a rushing, stiff breeze, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 And tongues as if of fire became visible to them and were distributed, and one came to rest on each one of them, 4 and they all became filled with holy spirit and started to speak in different languages, just as the spirit enabled them to speak.
17 ‘“And in the last days,” God says, “I will pour out some of my spirit on every sort of flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy and your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams, 18 and even on my male slaves and on my female slaves I will pour out some of my spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.
32 God resurrected this Jesus, and of this we are all witnesses. 33 Therefore, because he was exalted to the right hand of God and received the promised holy spirit from the Father, he has poured out what you see and hear.
The spirit of God is not the father. That is what scripture says.
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and dost thou not know me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; how sayest thou, Show us the Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I say unto you I speak not from myself: but the Father abiding in me doeth his works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask [e]anything in my name, that will I do. 15 If ye love me, ye will keep my commandments. 16 And I will [f]pray the Father, and he shall give you another [g]Comforter, that he may be with you for ever, 17 even the Spirit of truth: whom the world cannot receive; for it beholdeth him not, neither knoweth him: ye know him; for he abideth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you [h]desolate: I come unto you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world beholdeth me no more; but ye behold me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 In that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
So can you explain what the last statement - verse 20 - is saying?
Yes. So what was the purpose of God saying...
(Exodus 4:16) He will speak for you to the people, and he will be your spokesman, and you will serve as God to him.
(Exodus 20:2, 3) . . .“I am Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. 3 You must not have any other gods besides me.
(2 Corinthians 4:3, 4) 3 If, in fact, the good news we declare is veiled, it is veiled among those who are perishing, 4 among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.
Yes. According to scripture, all the heavenly host are spirit, and they are god-like, hence they are gods, or divine ones. (Hebrews 1:7) Also, he says about the angels: “He makes his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.”
Those taken from the earth to heaven, are also spirit. (1 Corinthians 15:44, 45) It is sown a physical body; it is raised up a spiritual body. If there is a physical body, there is also a spiritual one. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living person.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
What is that one spirit being referred to here? Please use scripture(s) to provide the answer.
Not according to scripture. The holy spirit is not the father. It is the spirit of the father. That's what scripture says.
No. Please provide scripture.
The scriptures say God is the one who gives the spirit. The spirit is from God. It is not God. It belongs to him. (Psalm 104:30) If you send forth your spirit, they are created; And you make the face of the ground new. . .
