    The magisterium, moreover, is an authoritative teacher of Catholic faith and morals when it exercises its teaching authority in a manner that is not clearly intended to be infallible. When the bishops teach on matters of faith and morals in their capacity as bishops, they "speak in the name of Christ and the faithful are to accept their. The Book of Proverbs also exhorts: In other words, do not pass off personal ideas as doctrine when the family adheres to the Magisterium. Let all teach what the Church teaches.
