    Okay, I am stepping out on a limb, but I say

    YES.

    Because, Christ came to fulfill the law, not destroy it.

    The only reason we can be justified is because of the perfect righteousness of Christ in that he completely fulfilled the law, which is summed up in the first two commandments.

    But, Dale-c, you know these things better than I do, correct?

    Scripture states that Christ came to do the Father's will. Obeying Him was part of that will. That included all of the Ten Commandments.

    Exodus 20:3
    3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

    Dale,

    Are you suggesting that Jesus isn't God and is not worthy of worship as God? Or are you asking, if in Christ this, among the rest of the law, is completed in Christ? Suggesting that other gods are of no consequence in Christ if one should be worshiping them.
