Did God create the world in seven literal days?

From David Guzik's Commentary: "Was this a literal day, in the sense we think of a day, or was it a geological age? Did God create the world in six days, or in six vast geological ages? The plain and simple meaning of the text is that He created in six days as we think of days." 

"If the days were not days at all, would God have countenanced.(supported, approved).the word? Does He trade in inaccuracies? The question hinges on the proper use of language.".(Kidner) 
    "There ought to be no need of refuting the idea that 'yom' means 'period'. Reputable dictionaries know nothing of this notion. Hebrew dictionaries are our primary source of reliable information concerning Hebrew words.".(Leupold)

-Does God care for some people more than for others?

Acts 10:34; 1Peter 1:17

-Does God know what's going on here?

Daniel 2:22; 4:25; Psalms 139:4; 44:21; 33:13; Acts 15:18.
    God cares greatly for us and is very aware of our presence here.(Isaiah 49:13-16 "Sing, O heavens and be joyful, O earth and break forth into singing, O mountains. For the Lord hath comforted his people and will have mercy upon his afflicted. But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands. Thy walls are continually before me").and aware of all else that goes on in His Universe -Matthew 10:29; Proverbs 15:3; 5:21; Hebrews 4:13.
.

-Did God make us good -Jeremiah 17:9?

Why do some of us of good hearts think that we are not so good? -Ecclesiastes 7:29; Romans 9:11; Philemon 1:6; Psalms 33:15 "He fashioneth their hearts alike. He considereth all their works."
    Jeremiah 17:9 means it's in the normal heart.(man's inborn nature).of man to 'circumvent'.(the original word for 'deceitful').others in selfish efforts to be and/or appear better, by such things as putting another down, thus lifting oneself up. 
    It's talking about the ego ruling -Philippians 2:3-8; Matthew 20:27,28. The heart being 'desperately wicked' is 'incurable'.(as the original has it).on its own to become any different.
    The normal heart is to desperately be number one, even if it means circumventing another or climbing over another in order to get what the self wants.
    Some turn to evil shortly after being born and won't allow themselves to be affected by any good they may come in contact with -Psalms 58:3,4.
    Our hearts are alike in the sense we are desirous of many of the same things from this world. From about the age of three we know that we are a separate definite personality, different from all others, and this is confirmed as we live through life. And so we shall end this life that way too.

-Did God write the Bible?

2Timothy 3:16,17 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."

-Does God have problems?

No! And you can be equal with Him. Therefore, you too can get rid of your problems. The key here is to be open with God. He wants you to be this way. Adam, the first man wasn't.
    So, it's important to talk to God about everything you are experiencing or about to experience while things are happening, right then and there. This is prayer. This is your 'secret' advantage. Only by talking to God, being totally open with him about what you know and don't know but want to know about yourself, can you move permanently away from your problem areas.
    Life's problem areas we're all affected by; problem areas to talk to God about.
