That sounds good to me except for the insistence on using the "God" concept.
If one insists on that, one is not writing about Buddhism, IMO.
Otherwise, many religions proclaim duties to humankind similar to those
found in Buddhism. Somewhere in one of the suttas there is also found the
"golden rule."  But the Buddha did not claim that what he was teaching was
God or gods, or came from him/her or them.
