Ada Mmili: I believe what that means is simple; do not worship other gods. We can only worship Chukwu Okike the creator of the universe. Thus, we only acknowledge the other gods as messengers of Okechi (Chukwu Okike). We acknowledge the gods & goddesses by venerating them ( appreciate their willingness to serve us as messengers of Chukwu). That is my understanding of the posted question. We never worship deities or gods, but venerate them as our way of appreciating their services to mankind.
