"I honor my parents, I honor my grandparents ... But we need buscarun new path, I joined this invitation because I want to investigate this path, I walk this path different, because I know the other."For different interpretations of these statements created a firestorm of controversy in many evangelical groups in the Spanish-speaking world because some interpreted that he was accepting Marcos Witt ecumenism, something rejected by many Protestants. This controversy is based on the Bible states that believers should not be put together with unbelievers in the same faith (2nd Corinthians 6:14-18), while other passages of the Bible mention that believers should be united (John 17:17-21).Then Marcos Witt made a video in which he explains his statements made in the press of that event, saying it was an act of "ecumenical", but a dialogue.Marcos Witt DubbingAlthough Marcos Witt is a professional voice actor lent his voice in the television series Angels Wars.Marcos Witt BooksWorshipA Worship Filled LifeBible in His presenceDecide right!Shine a LightLeadership at the endWhat we do with these musicians?Renew your neuronsLord, what I can do for you?How to exercise real authorityA life of excellenceHow I can develop my talents?Say Goodbye to Your FearsMarcos Witt Discography
