I would suggest it is the following.
The Church was called Catholic from the beginning #34. Inspite of the typical definition we hear of universal, Catholic means, the same belief that is universally believed by everyone everywhere. Beliefs had to be unified. Confusion is NOT the work of the HS. Note: Irenaeus (Bk 3 Ch 3 v1-3 in "Against Heresies) in the link above, Irenaeus makes the point “all must agree everywhere with (the Church of Rome) on account of it’s pre-eminent authority”.
Look at Jesus prayer.
[All emphasis mine]
John 17:20-23  [FONT=Arial]And not for them only do I pray, but for them also who through their word shall believe in me; [/FONT] That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee; that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. [/FONT] And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, as we also are one: [/FONT][/FONT] I in them, and thou in me; that they may be made perfect in one: and the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast also loved me.
When Paul ran into such people who caused divisions and dissent, Paul lowered the boom, he excluded them, because they made themselves “outside” apostolic teaching, by their own hand. And we know Paul’s teaching was being guided by the HS which means It ultimately is coming from Jesus John 16:12-15
]Romans 16:17-20 , [/FONT]Galatians 5:19-21, διχοστασίας dichostasia =* division / dissension / factions /sedition is same Greek word used in both Rom 16:17. And Gal 5:19… and Gal 20 tells the consequence for the soul if they don’t return to the Catholic Church before they die
“As for a man who is factious ( [FONT=Verdana]αἱρετικὸν[/FONT] heretic ), after admonishing him once or twice, have nothing more to do with him, 11 knowing that such a person is perverted and sinful; he is self-condemned.”[/FONT]
The Catholic Church is THE Church of the NT. 1 Timothy 3:15
Any truth others have on the faith came from the Catholic Church
It’s the only Church Our Lord established
No. The Catholic Church was established by Jesus. It is divinely established. Not established by human hands. Open all the links within #[FONT=Arial]34[/FONT]
As an aside, Peter didn’t lobby for his office. He wasn’t voted in by any council. Jesus established Peter’s office as He did the office of the other apostles. And as Peter said in council, when replacing Judas, “let another take his office” [FONT=Calibri]Acts 1:20 , THEN the apostles voted to replace Judas Acts 1:26 . [/FONT]And from this we see in action, apostolic succession, and thus validity of office in the Catholic Church.
