The Mandate

Cuando nosotros ir a una iglesia en los Estados Unidos, primero que nada nosotros hablamos con las personas en la iglesia acerca de los mandamientos en la Escritura. Queremos la gente pensar acerca de la Escritura para siempre. Algunas personas tienen una mal actitud sobre los mismos hispanos. Pero la gente necesita pensar correctamente y Bblicamente. Aqu estn algunos versiculos sobre esta situacin.

xodo 22:21 = Aqu leemos . . . Al extranjero no engaars ni angustiars, porque extranjeros fuisteis vosotros en la tierra de Egipto. La Biblia dice, No moleste . . . Recuerde ustedes eran extranjeros en Egipto hace muchos anos.xodo 23:9 = No oprimirs al extranjero, porque vosotros sabis cmo es el alma del extranjero, ya que extranjeros fuisteis en la tierra de Egipto. Otra vez la Biblia dice, No oprima al extranjero . . . Recuerde ustedes eran extranjeros. Recuerde que era difcil. 23.

Nosotros debemos somos extranjeros al mundo.3

The Mandate4. Leviticus 19:33-34 Love the stranger as one who is a native of your country.

And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him. But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

Learnabout the Hispanic culture.

Language Family Time Religion Etiquette

LANGUAGE:Hispanics consider language as the most important element to be preserved. The most universal and culturally unifying characteristic of U.S. Hispanics is their use of Spanish, either as a primary or as a secondary language. The same language is used by every one of the 21 Spanish-speaking nationalities comprising the U.S. Hispanic population. However, nationality colorations relate to pronunciations, cadence, and the meaning of individual words. Many Hispanic immigrants are fearful that their children will forget their native language. A recent poll estimates the use of Spanish in 80 percent of the U.S. Spanish households. Despite this estimate, you will find within the Hispanic community different levels of Spanish language usage: those who speak at least enough Spanish to get by; others who speak Spanish fluently or as a primary language; those who are bilingual; many who know only Spanish; and then a smaller percentage of those who know English only.

FAMILY:Hispanics are familistic. La Familia is very important. It is the main unit in the Hispanic community, superseding church, political parties, or any other group. Traditionally, the Hispanic family is a close-knit group and the most important social unit. The term familia usually goes beyond the nuclear family. The Hispanic family unit is characterized by strong and close bonds that include not only parents and children but also extended family and may include non-family members who are treated as family by virtue of long standing associations.In most Hispanic families, the father is the head of the family, and the mother is responsible for the home. Individuals within a family have a moral responsibility to aid other members of the family experiencing financial problems, unemployment, poor health conditions, and other life issues. A problem of one family member becomes the concern of the whole family. The macho philosophy permeates the Hispanic community and in many cases is dominant in the home. While it is true that families recognize the father/husband as the total authority, they look to the wife/mother for counsel.Family ties are very strong: when someone travels to another town or city to study or for a short visit (e.g., vacation, business, medical reasons), staying with relatives or even with friends of relatives is a common practice. Families often gather together to celebrate holidays, birthdays, baptisms, first communions, graduations, and weddings. Hispanic families instill in their children the importance of honor, good manners, and respect for authority and the elderly. Preserving the Spanish language within the family is a common practice in most Hispanic homes.Copied with permission from Hispanic Ministry in the Carolinas. www.hispanic-ministry.org.

TIME:Time is life. Many Hispanics find it difficult to adjust to the American-scheduled life. We must understand that where they come from-time as we know it-is not important. A mans life is not crowded with a hundred-and-one things to do. Usually one major event per day is planned and all of life surrounds it. The Hispanic nature is not to follow the clock. To the Anglo time is money and the clock runs, but to the Hispanic time is life and the clock walks. However, in the American business world they, realize the importance of following the clock and adjust their habits to keep a place in the work force. Although Hispanics are very energetic they are never in a hurry.

RELIGION:Religion is a serious matter in the Hispanic community. Church attendance is more common among Hispanics than among native-born Americans, and substantially higher than among other immigrant groups. The familys religious beliefs and traditions are considered the second most important element which should be preserved by Hispanics. Part of that tradition is the works-based theology ascribed to by the vast majority of Hispanic adults and fostered by the Roman Catholic Church. Catholicism is a strong bond among Hispanics that crosses all lines of national origins and levels of assimilation. Some 70 percent of Hispanics are Roman Catholic.The strength of the influence of Catholicism upon the Hispanic is not so muchor even primarilybased on religious belief. It has more to do with how much it has become a part of the culture. A person does not leave the Catholic church without also leaving the culture and a way of life. Every aspect of life is incorporated and integrated into the religion. Births, marriages, rites of puberty, holidays, even names involve religion. Thus, it is no easy matter for a person to leave the Roman Catholic Church. Nevertheless, many have become part of faith communities of Protestant denominations.

ETIQUETTE:EtiquetteSpanish speakers tend toward formality in their treatment of one another. A firm handshake is a common practice between people as greeting and for leave-taking. A hug and a light kiss on a cheek are also common greeting practices between women, and men and women who are close friends or family. The Spanish language provides forms of formal and nonformal address (different use ofustedvs.tufor the pronoun you, polite and familiar commands, the use of titles of respect before peoples first names such asDonorDona). In nonformal settings, conversations between Spanish speakers are usually loud, fast, and adorned with animated gestures and body language to better convey points.Hispanics usually give great importance to and place great value on looks and appearance as a sense of honor, dignity, and pride. Formal attire is commonly worn by Hispanics to church, parties, social gatherings, and work. Tennis shoes and jeans, however, are becoming more popular among Hispanic women, particularly in non-formal settings. Hispanics tend to be more relaxed and flexible about time and punctuality than U.S. people. For instance, people who are invited for an 8 a.m. event may not begin to arrive until 8:30 a.m. or later. Within the Hispanic community, not being on time is a socially acceptable behavior. Hispanics tend to be reserved about public speaking because of their accent.
