Yeah oh you better be good or the big man in the sky that says he loves you will send you to burn in hell. Totally controlled by fear.

 No i do not. As a christian i do not fear anything.

If christianity is based on fear, wouldn't ALL religions be?

Fear, as in scared?  No.  I'm Christian, though not the "religious" kind, and I'm not scared.

That's not true at all :)

I guess it depends on the denomination. Some seem to believe in "fearing God and above all else preparing for the rapture." I would not say the religion as a whole is based on fear.

I believe it was founded on fear of the unknow. Fear of what happens after death and used to control.

Not really. Some churches seem to make things fearful but ones I've been to weren't like that.
