    hear from them is that Jesus came to fulfill the law, not abolish it.  Either way, from a strictly historical perspective, fundamentalism is more representative of what Christianity has been than liberal Christianity.

      since from a historical perspective, Christianity has certainly been a religion enforced by higher ups (whether clerical or lay), making the people  believe certain "facts" (all of which are impossibilities,) as opposed to a guide for living one's life (which seems to be what Jesus preached about). Throughout history, the Church has mostly been about the "law" -  and Leviticus and the writings of Paul are where many of these prohibitions are found. But what do you expect when the Church became the arm of the State and a potent way to keep the people in line.
