I'm guessing that by default it will load up all your files.  Don't know 
for sure- but wouldn't be surprised.  Fortunately- it's easy to disable 
the loading of ~/.emacs and other site files:

emacs --help shows following two switches:

--no-init-file, -q          load neither ~/.emacs nor default.el
--no-site-file              do not load site-start.el
