Theological Pondering About Holy Trinity

Earlier today I was wondering about the whole holy trinity. I don't even know if all Christians believe in it or if it is just a catholic teaching. You know the sign of the cross? In the name of the father, and of the son, and of the holy spirit, amen. That is the holy trinity. The idea that god is three entities in one.

First pondering. Did Jesus exist before he was born to Mary? If God is three parts wouldn't the son always exist? If so how can he die for us when he was just returning to the form he was in since the beginning of time.

Now, if Jesus did not exist until he was born to Mary, was there a holy duo before hand. Either way I don't know where the beginning of the holy spirit was because he doesn't get the same press as the father and son.

*Disclaimer* This is in no way an endorsement of any beliefs. It is just a pondering regarding theology.

erm. well firstly, it's all just a sacrifical lamb thingum. so of course jesus had to die. it all makes sense. after all, no HUMANS are important enough. that'd be hubris. so god had to become human (but still god, depending on your denomination) and then die.

the holy spirit kinna begins at pentecost, but. as a part of god it ALWAYS existed at the same time. gotta love religion. the more nonsensical, the holier.
