    Does this sentence include the main idea?

    Please consider my sentence below:


    • "In heaven, we will love each and every heavenly human being completely to our maximum capacity for love. God, however, will always be the principal object of our love in heaven since the reason why we love each of our heavenly neighbours will be precisely because we love God in the first place."


    A part of what I am trying to say here is that in heaven, our heavenly love for God will be the reason for our heavenly love for our heavenly neighbours. Is this notion well included in the above sentence? (I am not trying to discuss religion here, I just want to make sure that my sentence portrays what it is supposed to portray). Thank you,

    Yes, your paragraph seems to properly incorporate that idea.

    Hello,

    thank you you for the reply,
    . Would you also say that the idea that I am trying to explain is well explained in my quoted sentence?

    It's more directly stated in your last paragraph, but most intelligent readers should get your point. If you're pitching it to the average person, your less literary and straightforward last paragraph would be the choice.

    Hello, thank you again for your feedback. In your last answer (see quote above), were you saying that if I am to pitch it to the average person, my last paragraph alone will clearly explain the idea (the idea that in heaven, our heavenly love for God will be the reason for our heavenly love for our heavenly neighbours.) to them?

    Thank you once again,
