When I was in college 30 years ago, I took a course on "Religions of the World." We discussed the RCC, and the question is, "How long will the Church survive?" They were people in my discussion group arguing that it would be gone in 30 years.

Here we are, 30 years later, asking the question, "How long can the Catholic Church survive?"

I'm sure there were those in 1520 asking the question, "How long can the Catholic Church survive?"

(recall 1517 was when Luther posted the 95 theses and started the Reformation)
