The concept of the Trinity is:
a. Christ exists with God in loving union from the beginning of time.
b. God created Christ to redeem mankind.
c. Christ created the Holy Spirit.
d. God created the Holy Spirit for the pleasure of His Son.
"[F]or the Father makes all things through the Word and in the Holy Spirit, and in this way the unity of the holy Trinity is preserved. Accordingly, in the Church, one God is preached, one God who is above all things and through all things and in all things. God is above all things as Father, for he is principle and source; he is through all things through the Word; and he is in all things in the Holy Spirit." – From a letter by St. Athanasius
The answer is a: Christ exists with God in loving union from the beginning of time.
