Questions you should ask your pastor and all learned theologians of your church.
If Genesis chapters 1 and 2 aren't describing two entirely different creations why are animals created before man in chapter one and man formed before the animals in chapter two? Does your church think God forgot what He did first, between chapters?
Genesis 1:24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
In 1:24 God made cattle/beasts of the earth; Then in 1:26 they made man.
Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul
Genesis 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
In 2:7 the Lord formed man of dust; Then in 2:19 formed every beast of the field.

is it that Jeremiah was "named" and "ordained" before he entered his mother's
womb? How did God already know him if he wasn't present in an earlier existence?
Here's your Father talking to Jeremiah: Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. And Paul writes: Ephes. 1:4 According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
Was the reason God wanted the Hittites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites completely destroyed because the were descended from angels impregnating human daughters of man?
If we all in this age have free will why did God knock Saul off his horse and temporarily blind him until he agreed to do God's will?

us predestined and God's elect?
Paul writes: Ephes. 1:4 According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
If the flood Peter tells us about in (2 Peter 3:5-6) was Noah's Flood how do you explain the these differences?
flood Peter describes
Not made waste
Earth made empty Not made empty
Earth made totally dark Not made dark
All vegetation destroyed Vegetation not destroyed
God rebuked the waters Waters gradually receded
they hastened away away over a period of months
All fish destroyed Fish were not destroyed
No foul were left Foul did not disappear
No animals left Animals were saved
No men left on earth Men were saved (8 eighth day men and probably allot of sixth day men)
No social system left Social system was preserved
Caused by fall of Satan Caused by fall of man
Became necessary to re-create All things preserved

Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet
