Relevant to recent discussion on this blog, the Conquistador, Castelar, thinks that he:
"...can go to my Lord when he walked this earth and fall on my knees -" (Time Patrol, p. 690)
Even if Christ is as imagined by Castelar, would he approve of conquests and crusades? More fundamentally, Castelar has no conception that the historical Jesus might differ significantly from the Christ of his faith. This is not put to the test because the Patrol apprehends Castelar before he is able to wreak much havoc with the timecycle.
