If we don't believe in all of it, if we each appoint ourselves Pope and throw out a doctrine here or a doctrine there, then our faith is no longer Catholic.
This is why, we "keep Jesus on the cross," because we, too, preach Christ crucified.
Paul says, "..we preach Christ crucified..." Why does Paul preach Christ crucified?
Doesn't he know Jesus has been raised from the dead? But, he knows that it is through the power of the crucified Christ on the cross that the bonds of sin and death are broken.
As Paul says in verse 24, Christ crucified is the "power of God".
1 Cor 2:2, "For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified." Again, didn't Paul know that Jesus had risen from the dead? Paul preaches Christ crucified because an empty cross has no power.
