Do non-Catholic Hispanic congregations incorporate any aspects of Hispanic Catholic spirituality, or is it all just evangelical Christianity translated into Spanish? For instance, how would it be viewed for a Hispanic Pentecostal Christian to have a devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe, or to light prayer candles to various saints? Do they just give all of that up?
I realize that more “Catholic-like” denominations, such as Episcopal or Lutheran, could accommodate this — but do they? I would think the less “Catholic-like” denominations, such as Baptist, Holiness, Church of God, independent churches, etc., could hardly incorporate this into their spirituality. Do they tell converts “put all of that aside, we know you grew up with it, it’s part of your culture, but that’s idolatry” or something like that?
