I'm asking questions where I don't necessarily want to hear what their pastor said, or what some website says, I don't even necessarily want to know what an official plenary session of any denomination said in the past 100 years.
I'm looking for what the popes have said. I'm looking for what was said by major denominational founders, like Luther, Calvin, and Wesley. I'd like to hear what has been said from the "church fathers". I'm also thinking about famous evangelicals, from tent-revivalists (Finney) to Billy Graham. Really big TV preachers not necessarily to be ruled out. Because of the limitations of this site, I'd be polite and accept Mormon Prophet, even though I don't find it to be within orthodoxy.
Is there a quick way to say this? The way I've worded it in two questions rules out, for example, the Presbyterians and Reformed Church. While I really don't give a hoot about what motions they passed in the past 50 years, I'm wondering if there's some "famous orthodox" personality that founded those groups.
