Why be Catholic?

The fact that Jesus Christ took on flesh, lived a human existence, communicated and confirmed certain divine truths, died, subsequently rose again, and (while he still walked the earth) founded and personally guaranteed the Catholic Church (in spite of the human corruption, which has always been a part of it) provides Catholic Christianity with a unique status, as the only constant, living eye-witness to divine truth (and the ONLY church that Jesus Christ EVER founded, authorized, empowered and eternally guaranteed, for the purpose of our salvation.)
