    It says in the 10 commandments that we shouldn't put any other GOD before me.

    When we worship JESUS and pray to JESUS are we worshiping other GODS?

    We put JESUS on the same playing field as GOD is that wrong?, are we worshiping JESUS wrong?

    Jesus IS God, so not to worry.

    No, Jesus is God. We should worship Him, and worship the Father through Him. They are one and the same. When He was here in the flesh, the Father was in Him, and He in the Father. Jesus told the apostles that since they had seen Him, they had seen the Father also. I hope that cleared things up for you. :)

    How do we say that?
    When Jesus was in trouble or needed something he would pray to GOD his father. How can JESUS pray to himself?

    There is order in the Trinity. An order of God the Father, Jesus the Son and God the Spirit.
    There is nothing wrong with worshipping Jesus, but it is wrong to worship only Jesus.

    Jesus is God, in the form of the son.

    You can worship another God by worshiping the same God.

    Jesus Christ was a man and lived the life of a man. However, if you believe the Bible at all--which I'm sure you do--it is absolutely clear that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one God.

    That doesn't mean the three are identical, but they are one god. This is the doctrine of the Trinity. And Jesus in many ways affirmed his divine nature, even as he showed the characteristics, emotions, etc. of his human nature.

    Jesus = God = Holy Spirit

    You can pray to Jesus he will pray to Father and to Holy Spirit for you.

    Btw by keeping 10 commandments you won't go to heaven , only one sin made in your life is enought to damn you to hell .You go to heaven by grace through faith in finished job of Jesus Christ who died on cross for all your sins ( 1 Cor 15:1-4) .

    Jesus = God
    Father = God
    Holy Spirit = God
    Jesus =/= Father or Holy Spirit

    The 10 commandments tell us to worship no other God but Yahweh.

    Thankfully, Jesus is Yahweh.

    Jesus is God. Jesus is the second person of the Trinity. He is not another God. He is God Himself.

    If one claims that Jesus is another God, they do not understand (or reject) the truth of the Trinity.

    The Son, the second person of the Trinity, prayed to the Father, the first person of the Trinity. Jesus did not pray to Himself.

    You have a fundamental misunderstanding of the Trinity.

    Here is a definition of the Trinity, although not infallible nor exhaustive:

    Within the one being of God, there exists three co-equal, co-eternal persons, namely the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. [James R. White, "The Forgotten Trinity"]

    Exactly. Taking Jesus of Nazareth out of the Trinity and focusing/worshiping only Him is leaving out a LOT of the Trinity (and is confusing).

    The passages that were quoted about Jesus praying to God (the Father) have to do with His humanity....as the Nicene Creed states:

    The ONE TRUE GOD = the TRI-UNE GOD = Father/Son/Holy Spirit.

    PRAYER: with respect to the TRI-UNE GOD:

    1. TO God the Father

    Matthew 6:6,9...Jesus teaches His disciples the "Model Prayer"; SEE ALSO: Luke 11:2
    But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and
    pray TO your Father who is in secret, and
    your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you...
    “Pray (TO), then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.

    Colossians 1:3
    We give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

    2. in the Power of God the Holy Spirit

    Romans 8:26
    In the same way (God) the (Holy Spirit also helps our weakness;
    for we do not know how to pray as we should,
    but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words;

    Ephesians 6:18
    With all prayer and petition pray at all times IN the Spirit,
    and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,

    3. in the NAME of God the Son

    John 16:23
    ...Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything IN MY NAME, He will give it to you.

    James 5:14
    Is anyone among you sick?
    Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him,
    anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord;(God the Son, Master, "kyrios")

    Richard Rohr writes a lot about how it's common in a lot of Protestant churches to "pluck Jesus out of the Trinity". This is a bit from an article of his:

    John 1:29, 36 (NASB)
    The next day he (John the Baptizer) saw Jesus coming to him and said,
    “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!...
    and he (John the Baptizer)looked at Jesus as He walked, and said,
    “Behold, the Lamb of God!”

    Revelation 21:23
    And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
