I notice the only commandment almost universally denied is the only commandment denoting and honoring Jesus Christ Son of GOD as creator, and thus the only legitimate personage qualified to be our Savior.

Christianity is following the commands and teachings of Jesus Christ, while Churchanity is following the commands and teaching of human church leaders. When church leaders put themselves in place of God and tell their followers to obey their human teachings, rather than the spiritual truths of God from Jesus Christ, then church members are seduced into following false human doctrine and thus false religion. It is following the commands of Jesus, the Son of God, that saves our soul. Following the false beliefs of human church leaders makes our worship of God "in vain" and totally worthless in God's eyes. We must not allow blind human leaders to lead the blind. We must follow the light of the world, namely Jesus Christ and his teachings. He is our savior, not church leaders.

This verse clearly means that worshipping Jesus Christ by anybody is false. Jesus Christ gives a clear statement regarding this. And such worship is in vain. We must only worship the God whom Jesus prayed to. Hoping for a reply.
