Point to Ponder

Many there are who will not tremble At God's word, but they tremble at the fear of personal loss. They tremble with fear at a mere man, though not at the Word of God. However, true gracious trembling at God's word strengthens the heart against all other fears.    J. Burroughs

How much do you and I value the Word?
Luther once said," I could not live in Paradise with out the Word, but with the Word I could live in Hell itself."



Doctor Robert L Colson, “Pastor Bob.” 66, of Mountain Home, passed away on Friday, March 8, 2013, at a local hospital.

Bob was born in Boise on July 11, 1946, and spent his school years on the Oregon coast where later his family enjoyed many delightful vacations over the years.

After high school, he joined the U.S. Navy, serving in Vietnam aboard the USS Oklahoma City and later in the National Guard.

Bob explored many professional pursuits, but his true calling was as a minister and pastor. He began his ministry at Idaho City Chapel after attending Trinity College in North Dakota. He received his Masters of Theology from Cole center for biblical studies as well as his Masters of Divinity and Doctor of Theology from Andersonville Theological Seminary. Bob also took him taught classes at Idaho Baptist College in Boise.

While at Cole, he filled many pulpits as part of Idaho Mountain Ministries, during which time he is asked to be pastor in 1993, at Open Door fellowship in Mountain Home, where he was ordained.

He was well taught in God's word and passed that knowledge to his church family and others for the last 20 years. He was a founding member of Shiloh Christian School, and taught religion there for many years.

His life was a living testimony to the power of God and an inspiration to all who knew him. Those who were fortunate to receive his in-depth teaching were blessed.

Bob finished the race and was greeted at his homecoming with a “well done, good and faithful servant.” He was truly a man after God's own heart. He will be missed and his memory will be cherished forever.
