Does GOD Always Speak the Truth?

That is a question I am even ashamed to ask. Yet, believe it or not, a lot of people either question His Word, or ignore it.

Non-Catholics teach that the Church which Jesus Christ founded in Matthew 16:18, apostatized either at the time of Constantine, or at the time of the reformation. They teach that the Catholic Church of today is not the Church which Jesus Christ founded. I challenge this false teaching, and I will use the Word of GOD itself to show where they are wrong.

GOD said: Isaiah 59:21...
"This is My Covenant with them said the Lord; My Spirit that is in thee, and My words that I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, said the Lord, FROM HENCEFORTH AND FOREVER."
This is a promise of the perpetual orthodoxy of the Church which Jesus Christ founded. 'Forever', means just that. It means the Church will 'NEVER' apostatize. How can anyone say it did? Is this not saying GOD does not always speak the truth?

GOD said: Matthew 16:18...
"And I say to thee, thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall NOT prevail against it."
Anyone who teaches that the Catholic Church apostatized, is also teaching just the opposite of what Jesus Christ said. They are teaching that the gates of hell DID prevail, are they not?

GOD said: Matthew 28:20...
"...teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and behold, I am with you ALL days, even unto the consummation of the world."
Jesus Christ said He would be with His Church ALL days, until the end of time. ALL DAYS means EVERY DAY of EVERY CENTURY, until the end of time. Yet non-Catholics teach, "yes but, only until the time of Constantine or Martin Luther, or some other unknown time". They teach that Jesus Christ was less than truthful in this verse, right?

GOD said: John 14:16-18...
"And I will ask the Father and He will give you another Advocate
to dwell with you FOREVER, the Spirit of Truth whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you shall know Him, because He will dwell with you, and be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you."
There is that word 'FOREVER' again, which non-Catholics either ignore or they teach, "it means temporarily", until Constantine or Luther comes along.

Okay, since we all know that GOD cannot lie, then everything He has said is absolute truth. Since in Scripture, He has told us over and over again, that He will be with His Church 'FOREVER', then the Church which He founded in Matthew 16:18 is still with us, right?
Since non-Catholics say it cannot be the Catholic Church, then I must ask them,

"To Name That Church?"
