    Usage of the phrase "the statement"

    The following is the email I sent:

    "Hi John, is the statement below correct?: "In heaven, we will love each human completely. In heaven, we will love each human equally, that is, we will not love one more than another. The love that we will have in heaven for everyone will be warm and selfless. In heaven, however, God will always be the principal object of our love because in heaven our love for God will be the precise reason why we love others." Thank you,"

    In this email, should I have asked "Are all of the 4 statements below correct?" (which is what I intended to ask), instead of asking "Is the statement below correct?" ? Can "statement" (i.e. not "statements") have two or more sentences, not just one?

    Thank you,

    Re: Usage of the phrase "the statement"

    A statement can contain multiple sentences.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
