Key Ozarks: What Makes Sense

Key Ozarks: What Makes Sense

By Bill Mundhausen
What makes sense is what we all want to know in order to live our lives meaningfully. This is a look at reality from a decidedly Christian perspective. Although our focus is small town local, our story is universal, so listeners from the outside world are welcome. For you, we represent a different perspective and paradigm. We look forward to hearing from you.

September 14, 2022

27:47
September 09, 2022

28:34
September 01, 2022
Biology - Kids Talk About Evolution
It's well known that teaching evolution isn't just about science in the way it is taught. It is an explanation about biology without a Creator, but what if creation is the true explanation? It puts science educators in the position of teaching what isn't true and does damage to school kids.
01:03
August 30, 2022
Episode 54 Worldview Part 8
Using XPO Minutes as the basis to discuss some fundamental worldview issues.

01:04
August 18, 2022
Cosmology - Eclipse
Solar eclipses are not just a visual spectacle. Scientists use eclipses to observe phenonena that would otherwise by unobservable. It's almost like someone planned it to help mankind discover things.
01:01
August 18, 2022
Biology - The Scientific Theory of Creation
There actually is a theory of creation that is more plausible than the theory of evolution. We look outside and see birds...lots of birds...all different varieties. The evidence is that birds can differentiate into varieties, but never become something other than birds. That's why we can classify all animals so easily into various kinds. God created the kinds.
01:03
August 18, 2022
Bible - Neil deGrasse Tyson
Neil deGrasse Tyson is an example of how a person can be really expert in one are of knowledge, but incompetent in another. We all know this is true in our own experience. People tend to specialize. I ran a museum once, but you don't want me to build a house for you. In this clip, we come to understand that astrophysicist Tyson is naive in his understanding of how knowledge accumulates. 
01:04
August 18, 2022

A continuation of the series about worldview expanding on a series of 6-second messages.

01:04
August 10, 2022
Government - Leadership
Real leaders, lead by taking the lead. They can expect people to follow because they have already been there.
01:03
August 10, 2022
Gospel - Francis Schaefer
Francis Schaefer asked the question, if the Bible is true, "how should we then live?"
01:04

01:04
August 10, 2022
Biology - Genetic Repair
If organisms evolve, why would genetics work so hard to prevent evolution?
01:04
August 10, 2022
Bible - Seven Days Too
Genesis says that God created in six days and rested on the seventh, but the importance of Genesis isn't about days. It's who God is.
01:05
August 10, 2022
Worldview - Been Platt
Is it good to be strange? No, people desire to belong. The modern mantra of diversity is meant to manipulate you.
01:04
August 06, 2022
Government - William Jennings Bryan
The father of modern liberalism, Democrat William Jennings Bryan was a champion of the common man's love of the Bible.
01:03
August 06, 2022

01:04
August 06, 2022
Gospel - Katy Perry
Are Christians judgmental? No more than everybody else. Just try speaking out against the woke folks.
01:03
August 06, 2022
Dinosaurs - In History
The many historical accounts of living dragons testifies to dinosaurs living during historical times.
01:04
August 06, 2022
Cosmology - Barry Setterfield
Creationists are pushing the boundaries of modern cosmology, but most Americans are not allowed to know it.
01:02
August 06, 2022
Biology - Woodpeckers
The irreducible complexity of many life forms testifies to design instead of evolution. All of the specialized aspects of a woodpecker...rigid beak, shock-absorbing skull, elongated tongue, and ability to cling to vertical surfaces...they all have to be there at the same time for the woodpecker to function.
01:05
August 06, 2022
Bible-Last Days
The Biblical view of our times...approaching the final conflict in world affairs and the return of Jesus.
01:04
August 06, 2022
Episode 52 Worldview Part 6

01:04
August 04, 2022

01:00
August 04, 2022
Gospel-What's a Modios?
An archaeological find that reveals Jesus' story about hiding your light under a bushel.
01:04
August 04, 2022
Geology-The Hydroplate Theory
Secular geology lacks a comprehensive theory of earth science. Dr. Walt Brown used Genesis to develop a geologic theory that explains all the evidence.
01:05
August 04, 2022
Dinosaurs-Dragons
Can the whole world be wrong? Not just legends, but historical accounts from cultures around the world, all testify to the existence during human history of giant reptilian animals.
01:05
August 04, 2022
Cosmology-The Privileged Planet
A product of intelligent design, the idea that our planet is perfectly designed to support life and encourage scientific discovery. The implication is there must be a designer.
01:03
August 04, 2022
Biology-Has Evolution Been Proven?
Science has pretty much falsified evolution theory, but atheists are in denial. The nature of scientists is to cling to the established theory in spite of the evidence. Theories are their security blanket.
01:00
August 04, 2022
Bible - Creation In Six Days
For Bible believers. Does God know what a day is? Does He know how to communicate? Genesis describes creation in six days and God rested on the seventh day. In recognition of creation, God instructed man to observe a seven-day week. Even atheists live their lives around God's instruction of a seven-day week. 
01:01
August 04, 2022

27:57
July 25, 2022
Episode 48 Worldview Part 2
This episode is a continuation of our worldview series where we play 60-second worldview clips and expound on each. These Xpo Minutes were derived from museum displays and adapted for radio. They plant seeds and we explain what they mean.
27:14
July 14, 2022
Episode 47 Biblical Worldview Series #1
This is the start of a series based on Xpo Minutes 60-second messages previously broadcast on radio at Lake of the Ozarks. I use the term "worldview" because it is the accepted term for how you look at reality, but reality doesn't really change for each individual. What makes sense is what you actually see (observe) and a reasonable hypothesis regarding what it means. God created us to comprehend his creation, not to re-imagine it.
28:43
July 13, 2022
Episode 46 The Unfortunate Fruit of Isolation
Birds of a feather flock together. It happens in church and in politics. But what is the unfortunate result of isolating yourself among like-minded friends?
29:51
June 20, 2022
Episode 45 Convention of States
The Convention of States movement continues to face opposition from conservatives who misunderstand it. This episode includes a well-intended opposition along with my responses to heal the division. 
29:53
June 20, 2022
Episode 44 The New Politics of Local Resolution
We need a new approach to local politics without the gotcha mentality of the national scene. Rather than holding local officials' feet to the fire as conservatives are want to say, let's work with them to bring about justice at the local level. Let's resist the temptation to beat them up and work to get real resolution, maybe even a little repentance. Then we can unite our local community for protection against Federal overreach.
29:24
May 19, 2022
Episode 43 Talking About Key Radio
This episode features John Williams from the Missouri Liberty Report interviewing Bill Mundhausen about Key Radio. We talk about the background of Key Radio, our programs, changes in the radio industry, and how advertisers (underwriters) and content creators can participate.
28:46
May 12, 2022
Episode 42 Real Estate and Us
Lake of the Ozarks, and really much of rural Missouri, is experiencing a hot real estate market. People from all over the country want to live or own property in the Ozarks and home prices are going up. in spite of high prices, houses sell almost immediately, making it impossible to shop for the right home. Realtors are frustrated because there isn't enough inventory to sell. First-time homeowners have little opportunity in this kind of market, yet the local economy needs working people to be able to live here. This episode explores the issues but also talks about some solutions as well as opportunities to make money while serving people's needs.
28:11
May 05, 2022
Episode 41 The Weedy People
This episode is for people who want to increase their members, base, or followers. The "weedy people" refers to Jesus' parable about the sower and the seed. The weedy soil received the seed but the plants were choked out by weeds, which Jesus described as the cares of the world. The weedy people are the uncommitted people who are distracted by life, but they can be reached. Stop preaching to the choir. Connect with new people.
28:54
May 05, 2022
Key Opinion - Affordable Housing
Lake of the Ozarks is experiencing a strong real estate market...too strong. Many local people feel they are being left out of the home-buying market due to high prices, and many developers fear the shortage of affordable housing for service workers will negatively impact new venues that will need employees.
04:18
May 05, 2022
Episode 40 Threeness and the Lost Soul
Have you noticed how crazy people have become? My hypothesis is that it's not everyone, but a minority of people are especially susceptible to mass psychosis. This episode talks about sociopathy, which psychologists describe as a personality disorder in which individuals have no conscience or sympathy for others. They seem to lack the characteristics of the human soul that we generally recognize as noble and selfless. I enlist my daughter, Gretchen Peters, to discuss whether there are people among us whose mental state prevents them from recognizing good and evil. We consult with Jesus over the parable of the sower of seeds and condition of the soil (and soul).
29:47
April 22, 2022
Episode 39 Don't Be Captive To Ideology
This episode kicks off a new series that takes a pragmatic approach to all the matters of daily living. We talk about a well-reasoned response to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, election integrity, government schools and COVID spending, the unfortunate state of professional tennis, Facebook and Metaverse, and freedom of speech. So many complex concerns require critical thinking instead of dogmatic reaction or media brainwashing. 
28:23
April 22, 2022
Key Opinion - School Board Election
This opinion piece is in response to a local school board election. All across America, rural communities are increasingly at odds with their public school administrations. Those administrations promote the more liberal leftist, sometimes radical, perspectives fostered by colleges and universities, whereas the worldview of rural communities is more traditional and conservative. The challenge for rural communities is to accept the benefits of public education while restraining the attempts to indoctrinate young people. What should be the role of citizens and school board members? Do we love our schools or do we act as gatekeepers to protect our children?
04:25
April 14, 2022
Episode 38 - Everyone Has A Song
This episode is a retrospective of my aspirations as a singer/songwriter. It's partly a family remembrance, but also an attempt to inspire others to share something less wordy and intellectual and more heart-felt. There must be others out there who wrote songs or poetry or did something creative that was never shared with a wide audience.  
25:44
January 20, 2022
Episode 37 Seeing Is Believing
Seeing Is Believing is a recommendation. Set aside abstract thinking, ideology, and theology. Redirect your mind toward what God has given you, knowledge of His Word and experience of His creation. This may well be the key to learning what is true and productively operating in truth. 
27:36
January 08, 2022
Episode 36 Journalism, Science, and Climate Change
This title is a little misleading. It's about all those things but I'm also concerned with solutions. Consider how we might tear down the high places, the strongholds that promote evil in our society and work contrary to God's Kingdom.

Episode 24 Tuning Out The Establishment
The establishment, particularly the American press, have an agenda to spread confusion, disillusionment, and disinformation. It's time to tune it out and focus on local community values. That's easy to say in the Ozarks because our values are rock-solid, but even here there are movers and shakers who want us to look like New York or California. We just need to resist.
