Jesus is the creator of the universe.

In the Bible, it explicitly states that God created the world, not Jesus. Also, to assume that Jesus has prime authority means you are rejecting the validity of two other similar religions. (1) Judaism, from which Christianity originates, and (2) Islam, which worships the same God as Judaism and Christianity. There is no logical way to put Christianity above the other two based on creation.

In my mistake, God is the creator of the universe and Jesus, His son, came to the earth to be crucified for all man kinds sin. He was buried and rose again. In my Christian belief no other man in any other religion in history has died and come back to life. That is what separates Christianity from any other religion because while Jesus sits a the right hand side of God Mohammad is still in his grave.

While resurrection is indeed a fascinating event, it does absolutely nothing to prove that a religion is "right". The question of the right religion is too significant to be determined by the last man standing.
However, that is beside the point. Is any religion even completely correct? Most prominent religions have the same central idea: an unknown, metaphysical realm exists and is the explanation for life and existence. The difference between these religions is how the followers experience, interpret, and interact with this realm. It would be almost impossible for one group of people to be completely correct. It would also be somewhat ignorant to reject other religions based on differences in traditional stories (David and Goliath, Achilles, Mohammad, the Resurrection, etc), as many fundamental aspects of each religion are very similar.
So now the real question arises. Is your position in this debate based off of a logical, unbiased assessment of the religions of this world? Or are you taking Christianity's side because the Bible commands you to do so?

Amen! If you believe that the Bible is the undisputed Holy Word of God then that would be the proof that Christianity explains the purpose of our being from birth to death. If you do not believe that the Bible is the Holy Word of God then this debate could go on without an end!

Personal belief in the Bible cannot, in any way, logically prove its validity. Using the Bible and your own faith as evidence supporting the Bible is a logical fallacy known as circular reasoning. Your side of the argument has nothing to do with reason. I would also like to point out that followers of other religions could use that same argument to prove to you that Vishnu or Quetzalcoatl explain the purpose of life, and you would have no way to dispute them without destroying your own argument supporting the Bible.
For example, according to your argument, the following chain of events would have taken place on 12/21/12:
1. Thousands of people believe that the Mayan Calendar signifies the end of the world.
2. Because of this belief, the Calendar is proven to be true.
3. Everybody dies.

Mr. Sarcastic was correct when he said that Jesus created the universe. In genesis 2: 4, of the King James Bible, and in a lot of other scriptures it says that The Lord god, which is Jesus, invented the universe. Mr. Sarcastic was correct in saying Jesus invented the universe because of this.
