May I offer you some Jesus?

It is also worth noting that what became Christianity had very little to do with Jesus. It is mostly based on the teachings of Paul (aka Saul of Tarsus).
I agree it became very repressive, but I would ascribe a lot of that to it becoming the Roman state religion. That spread it far and wide, but it became a conservative agent of state power in the process.
