If He isn't deity, wouldn't He have rebuked or corrected those who fell at His feet and worshipped? Did not the Father command the very angels to worship Him?

Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. He deserves our respect and worship as such. Nowhere in God's Word does it ever say the Son is Deity.

It probably doesn't matter. I think the only thing that does is whether we are of service to others. That is living the gospel.

Matthew 3:16-17 - After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him, and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased."

Philippians 2:5-8 - Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Colossians 2:9 - For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form,

It does matter. He does want our worship and honor. Even though we can't see Him, He wants us to have faith in Him, He wants us to relate to Him, and He wants us to do His works on the earth so that others acknowledge Him.

It is not about worshiping Jesus. It is about worshiping God through Jesus who is the ONLY human consciousness directly connected to God's consciousness.
