      So, to summarize: yes, Catholics must believe what's been authoritatively taught by the Catholic Church, even if it's not presented infallibly, but we are not bound to assent to individual bishops (or even the Pope) when they are merely offering their theological opinions. Faith is a combination of belief and trust, and there are a great many in this world who believe whole-heartedly in the death and resurrection of Jesus (Roman Catholics are perhaps the most prominent example, but can also include Mormons and others) who do not trust in that accomplished work alone for their salvation. Our Confessions hold that.
