    Is 'key point' correctly used?

    Whether you are reborn as an animal or a human, the key point is the karma that you have created. The future lifetime of your father, mother and yourself depends on their and your karma.

    The above sentence is my own creation.

    Is 'key point' correctly used?

    Thanks.

    Re: Is 'key point' correctly used?

    Which of the following do you want to say?

    Whether you are reborn as an animal or a human , the key point is depends on the karma that you have created.
    Or,

    Regardless of whether you are reborn as an animal or a human, the key point is the karma that you have created.
    The second sentence seems to imply that a person's karma will affect their parents' future lives and vice versa. Is that what you intended?

    That's a complex relationship! In any case, use "life" instead of "lifetime" in that sentence.
