comment Who was the last valid pope according to the founders of various Protestant sects?
@bruisedreed: No, but if you are Henry VIII, you believe your church is the only valid one, and you are the only valid head of that church. The only meaningful definition for "universal church" is "universally valid church." This is what the RC church believes. It's what the CoE once believed. It's what LDS and JWs believe.

@bruisedreed: Now days the LDS disavows that, but their historical roots are still protestant (as they will admit). It's all a matter of definition. Historically, LDS are protestant. Theologically, they say they are not.

But to address your question, the Church of England split from the RC church specifically on that point, when Henry VIII appointed himself head of the church. Today Queen Elisabeth II holds the title of Supreme Governor of the Church of England‌​, the position originally held by Henry VIII.

comment Who was the last valid pope according to the founders of various Protestant sects?
@bruisedreed: JW and LDS are often considered protestants, since they formed outside the RC church and after the reformation. But it really depends on your definition, since "protestant" isn't a strictly defined term. Greek Orthodox usually are not historically considered protestants since they existed prior to the reformation, but theologically sometimes they are.

comment Who was the last valid pope according to the founders of various Protestant sects?
1) As already stated, most protestants don't believe there ever was a single valid pope. 2) A survey of every founder of every protestant sect would be impossible to conduct on this or any other topic, making this format "Too broad" even if the question itself made sense.

comment What does Israel being God's chosen people actually infer?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the motivations of God.

comment Who was the last valid pope according to the founders of various Protestant sects?
who have Protestants regarded as the legitimate head of the Church, then the answer is simply Christ -- Unless "Protestants" includes the Church of England (which has a human head of the church), the LDS, or JWs, or a handfull of other historical and present protestant movements which have had their own head(s).

comment Are there Christians who believe Jesus was an ideology and not a person?
In the NIV the word "Christian" appears three times, and not once is it in the context of a definition. Acts 11:26, Acts 26:29 and 1 Peter 4:16
