I, Ronald F. Avery, under the jurisdiction of the Session of First Presbyterian Church, Seguin, Texas, accuse Reverend Dr. Carl McCauley, Pastor of same, of committing the offense of censoring me contrary to Holy Scripture and the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and I submit the following information in support of said accusation:


The said Rev. Carl McCauley on the morning of Tuesday September 16, 2008 called me on the telephone and said that he spoke for the Session when censoring me from presenting any evidence in Sunday school or church that is contrary to the government approved theories about what happened on 9/11/01 at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and at Shanksville Pennsylvania.


Rev. McCauley censored me on his own without following the judicial process of first filing a disciplinary accusation against me with the Session and the Session appointing a Committee of Investigation from within the church, but outside the Session, giving me a chance to be heard to determine if my actions warranted a filing of charges for a trial to be conducted by a Prosecuting Committee of the Session. Rev. Carl McCauley did this in violation of Chapter 10 of the Rules of Discipline in the Book of Order Part II of the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).


 Rev. McCauley censored me on his own in violation of the Confessions derived from the Holy Scriptures and traditionally practiced by the Presbyterian Church namely:


Q. 26. How doth Christ execute the office of a king?

A. Christ executeth the office of a king in subduing us to himself, in ruling and defending us, and in restraining and conquering all his and our enemies.[1] (Bolding added)


Q. 45. How doth Christ execute the office of a king?

A. Christ executeth the office of a king, in calling out of the world a people to himself; and giving them officers, laws, and censures, by which he visibly governs them; in bestowing saving grace upon his elect, rewarding their obedience, and correcting them for their sins, preserving and supporting them under all their temptations and sufferings; restraining and overcoming all their enemies, and powerfully ordering all things for his own glory, and their good; and also in taking vengeance on the rest, who know not God, and obey not the gospel.[2] (Bolding added)


Q. 54. How is Christ exalted in his sitting at the right hand of God?

A. Christ is exalted in his sitting at the right hand of God, in that as God-man he is advanced to the highest favor with God the Father, with all fullness of joy, glory, and power over all things in heaven and earth; and doth gather and defend his church, and subdue their enemies; furnisheth his ministers and people with gifts and graces, and maketh intercession for them.[3] (Bolding added)


How can the church pray to Christ Jesus the King of Kings for its preservation and defense and restraint of its enemies if the church censors the truth about how their enemies are deceiving the church and harming the integrity of the church and the lives, liberties and estates of its members? A church that is so asleep that it knows not how they are being harmed and is so fearful of government and social repercussions that it censors those that try to awaken it shall be punished according to the parable of the vineyard and the husbandman:


“Therefore for this purpose are the ministers of the Church called—namely, to preach the Gospel of Christ to the faithful, and to administer the sacraments. We read, also, in another place in the Gospel, of “the faithful and wise steward,” whom “his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time” (Luke 12:42). Again, elsewhere in the Gospel a man takes a journey in a foreign country and, leaving his house, gives his substance and authority over it to his servants, and to each his work.”[4]


The church has been given authority over the Kingdom of God that Christ has established on the earth to be wise stewards of it and to resist evil when it comes to harm the vineyard or the Kingdom. And when evil forces deceive a nation and use its seats of authority to harm the nation and the church therein, the church and ministers have a job to learn about how this evil scheme is done and forbid it and resist it. When the deceiving magistrate begins to reward evil and punish good to protect their schemes then the magistrate loses their ordination from God and may be resisted by the church and the people who retain their own sovereignty to make and unmake governments to defend their lives, liberties and estates:


We hold that any men who conspire to rebel or to overturn the civil powers, as duly established, are not merely enemies to humanity but rebels against God’s will.[5] (Bolding added)


And the foregoing also applies equally to those men who overturn the civil powers from within the government and within their offices to usurp the powers belonging to others and to exercise tyranny which no man has authority and unlawfully alter the form of government from that which was “duly established” by the people for the sole purpose of protecting their property consisting of life, liberty and possessions.


Therefore we confess and avow that those who resist the supreme powers, so long as they are acting in their own spheres, are resisting God’s ordinance and cannot be held guiltless. We further state that so long as princes and rulers vigilantly fulfill their office, anyone who denies them aid, counsel, or service, denies it to God, who by his lieutenant craves it of them.[6] (Bolding added)


The obvious but unstated corollary of what is written above in the Scotts Confessions is that those so-called civil magistrates that begin to act outside “their own spheres,” and “conspire to rebel” against the institutions that gave them authority and “overturn the civil powers” that authorize them may be morally resisted theologically, philosophically and militarily as not only “enemies to humanity but rebels against God’s will.”


The information I provided to the Sunday school class shows that some so-called civil authorities in the United States are part of a now provable conspiracy to hide the truth about what happened on 9/11/01 and blame the murder and destruction of 9/11/01 on those who are not responsible or guilty of those crimes. These same civil authorities also demonize and persecute those who are discovering the truth of 9/11/01 and publishing those facts so that all persons may act according to their consciences and so that Christians may pray to God in Christ for their preservation and defense from these so-called magistrates and their wicked schemes.


On September 14, 2008, I passed out a DVD entitled 9/11 Blueprint for Truth – Architecture of Destruction produced by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth[7] with a two page letter of introduction to every family in my Sunday school class taught by Rev. Dr. Carl McCauley. This was the incident that initiated Rev. McCauley’s censorship of me. On several Sundays over a couple of years I had handed out several other things during Sunday school that I had written concerning the “Kingdom of Heaven on Earth” and a critique of the DVD entitled Zeitgeist.


Prior to this, in response to Rev. McCauley’s powerful 4th of July sermon calling our church to be the “conscience of our nation,” I delivered a DVD of the 9/11 Blueprint for Truth with a four page letter to Rev. McCauley requesting him to view the DVD and then permit me to show it to our Sunday school class and our whole congregation because of the magnitude of its importance to our nation, church and Christian witness. He said nothing and tried to avoid me until I caught him in the hall one Sunday morning and asked him if we could show the DVD to some members of our church and he replied that he thought people would think it was “Bush bashing.” I said that the information on the DVD was not implicating one political party or individual over another but in fact indicted both parties. Nothing more was said by Rev. McCauley regarding showing this DVD.


On Monday August 18, 2008, I also emailed Rev. McCauley asking him once again to let me show this DVD to our congregation in response to his mighty sermon the previous Sunday making the whole congregation recite the declaration Christ made in his hometown Synagogue:


The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.[8]


There was no response to this email. Then I received the new updated version of the DVD on Friday 9/12/08 and in anticipation that there would be mention of the 9/11/01 event from members and from the pulpit on Sunday September 14, 2008, I took it upon myself to handout the DVD to each family in our Sunday school class with a two page introduction letter taking full responsibility for its distribution and notifying the class that the DVD was not sponsored by our church.


Rev. Carl McCauley then called me the following Tuesday morning September 16, 2008 and told me not to talk about or present any 9/11/01 information that was contrary to the government approved story. He told me that he spoke for the Session in his telling me to never talk or hand out information contrary to the government approved 9/11 story concerning terrorists attacks. I therefore decided to appeal to the Session since he had mentioned them, not knowing all the rules of judicial procedure regarding how censorships were to be brought and managed against members or how complaints were to be made against a pastor under the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).  After obtaining a copy of the Constitution including the Book of Confessions and the Book of Order, I realized I should have filed my accusation of wrongful censorship against the pastor with Mission Presbytery which has jurisdiction over him according to D-3.0101 b.(1).[9]


Prior to getting the Constitution I had prepared a bound document entitled Prayer for Lift of Censorship Against Ronald F. Avery and mailed it to all 12 members of the Session and to Rev. McCauley and Rev. Bob Sebesta of First Presbyterian in Seguin. This document contains a defense of my actions in six parts including a conclusion and prayer for the lift of censorship against me and permission from the Session to show the DVD to my Sunday school class and the whole congregation. I included a copy of the DVD to each of the 12 members of the Session. My bound Prayer document mailed to the Session also contained five exhibits: (A) Memo of phone conversation censoring me; (B) July 6, 2008 letter to Rev. McCauley requesting permission to show DVD in response to 4th of July sermon; (C) copy of 8/18/08 email to Rev. McCauley about his sermon to “set at liberty those that are bruised” requesting permission once again; (D) hand delivered letter to Sunday school class on 9/14/08; (E) the 9/11 Blueprint for Truth DVD.


As of this date I have not heard a word from anyone on the Session or from Rev. McCauley concerning my Prayer to the Session. I realize however that they do not have to do anything as my accusation was filed with the wrong party. I do not think they have forwarded this to the correct committee at Mission Presbytery either as I have not been informed about anything regarding my Prayer for Lift of Censorship. I therefore include herewith the same document that I sent to the Session marked Exhibit AA and adopt all things in that document within this accusation as if it were written and bound herein.


I am asking the Presbytery to find that my good friend, Rev. Carl McCauley, violated the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) when he censored me and that the censorship against me be lifted concerning all information relating to the events of 9/11/01. The events of 9/11/01 are critical to our lives as Christians and our witness to our nation and beyond and these same events are also related to the economic crisis we are presently experiencing. We cannot conform to the image of Christ and censor discussion and knowledge concerning the most critical issues of our time. The church should be a beacon to lead the nation in these times rather than a candle under a bushel hiding in fear of government and social retaliations. We should fear God more and resist tyranny as is the proud tradition of Presbyterianism of which Rev. McCauley would agree.


It is further my honor and joy to be part of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) that provides for a constitution and process to conduct an orderly way to live out our lives together as a church to correct ourselves according to Holy Scriptures. It is also a pleasure to continue in Rev. Carl McCauley’s Sunday school class and I count him as a very good friend whom I have had the extreme pleasure of working on the Festival of Christian Art and Music (FCAM) together and who performed the wedding of my oldest daughter and performed the burial ceremony for my mother. None of this will effect my admiration and love of the honorable Rev. Dr. Carl McCauley.


I would also like to say that I love all the members of First Presbyterian in Seguin including Tome Walters who was one of four on the committee for developing the FCAM. But the 9/11 issue and all associated facts is vitally important to our nation and church in America and I must talk about it to conform to the image of Christ as required by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).


Sincerely and respectfully submitted:



Ronald F. Avery
