I would be really interested to hear why people have chosen the religion they currently follow.

Christianity doesnt just teach morals. It shows that God is the source of those morals, and that we strayed from them.
The bible teaches that there is a consequence of sin. Death. Physical and for the soul. Thats the law. The way it is. But if just one person could be born without sin, and keep from sin, and offer themselves to pay the price of sin, then the law would be filled, and no one else would have to die if they chose to become adopted into that saviors family.
Christianity teaches that Jesus Christ paid that price. All who call on His name, and believe, will be saved. The bible also says that anyone who does not accept the sacrifice of Christ, is not saved and does not have God either. Very exclusive to say the least, but all inclusive for those who wish to be included, and strive to keep the word of Christ.
I tried to put this in lay terms, and hope Ive helped more then hindered.
