Today more than at any other time, men need better friendships. In fact, I believe every guy needs a God Buddy!

Rich and his original “GB”, Bill Johnson

For this very reason, I started this blog back in January 2019 to explain why men (and women for that matter!) need more authentic, genuine friendships.

I began calling these types of friendships a “God Buddy” over 15 years ago because I saw the need for men to have a small number of deeper, more authentic relationships instead of the shallow acquaintances and social media connections so many have these days. (I actually had the real need for deeper friendships myself. Read about it here).

I now believe that all men need a “GB” (that’s short for “God Buddy”) in order to enjoy biblical manhood and friendship as those were designed by our Creator. Without deep friendships, men become isolated, which has a negative impact on our health and our relationships.

Through my weekly posts, I make the case for God Buddies and provide some very practical advice on developing intimate, accountable relationships with a small group of men who share the common goal of becoming more like Christ.

My posts also include words of encouragement and tips on how to care for yourself and how to care for those within your circle of influence: your spouse, children, extended family, friends, and yes, even your own GBs!

My goal is to continue to develop the topic of God Buddies and eventually write the book that’s been swirling around in my brain for many years. Your contributions via the comment section and suggestions for related content will also help me along the way.

Hello,
This comment is not intended to detract from what you are saying and I agree fully we need a good friend. My comment is to let people know that have a God buddy. Watching TBN, they took a survey of how many had “issues”,i.e. depression, addiction, etc. and 50% or more did and I don’t think many in church understand that we have this treasure in earthen jars 2 Cor. 4:7.

HE IS WITH EVERYONE. Luke 17:21 says the Kingdom of God is in our midst. It is a realm or dimension most of us cannot see.
Some preach Jesus will appear in the sky with 10,000 angels, maybe so, but an acquaintance addicted to cocaine said God if you’re real help me. He saw a flash and heard NEVER WILL I LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU Heb. 13:5.
*a card dealer in Vegas filled the tub and said God if you’re real baptize me, she is now a minister.
*a prisoner addicted to cocaine said you have something special when I prayed – told him it wasn’t me it was Jesus.
*another time a man cried when I told him the verses about God’s Love for us – google God’s Love.
*I said God help me stop drinking, I didn’t make the beer so bitter I couldn’t stand the taste in one night.
*I didn’t cause depression to leave in minutes or have a veteran with PTSD say he saw Jesus when I prayed. At a veterans retreat in Colorado veterans with PTSD see Jesus 100% of the time ! operationrestoredwarrior.com.
*I didn’t heal myself of several health issues, including a heart issue. check you tube videos of healing in the name of Jesus. Watch: 26 miracles RW Shambach, Randy Clark, Todd White, Reinhardt Bohnke, Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin, Mel Bond, Robbie Dawkins and others.
*I didn’t make myself cry from feeling God’s Love or cause a young woman to cry so hard her friend said are you ok.
*I didn’t cause NETWORK OF PRISON MINISTRIES to appear in bold on my laptop when I typed the letter V – I volunteer a little for our local prisoner release program and share God’s testimony, Videos of Healing, and other papers.
*I didn’t give myself the message: TELL ABOUT MY LOVE.
It’s in a book on Amazon and all proceeds go to charity: SEEK ME and you will find ME Jer. 29:13 ; I did and I DID.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS BOOK IS TO PRESENT INFORMATION THAT EVERY SINGLE PERSON HAS ACCESS TO GOD.
Blessings,
Ron

    Thanks for weighing in Ron. I appreciate that you read the post and agree that God is certainly a God Buddy for all of us when we just enter into a relationship with Him. I hope you enjoy reading the other posts on the website. God bless you!
