PetahChristian:

Phil recently posted that FL is discussing how to incorporate Denominations and Theological tagging into Logos:

"This is definitely something we'd like to do. We've been discussing it internally and want to make sure we approach it in the right way. Once we have an agreed-upon approach, it's just a matter of timing when to do the work."

Looking forward to this as an added feature.

Thanks for the cross-post.  I would have missed it otherwise.  

Those who use this project may want to see one of the ways I see this developing here: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/133058/918806.aspx#918806 and consider voting for the new development here: https://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-7/suggestions/17871697-create-a-database-of-biblical-issues-and-stances-w

Logos have only taken on the Denomination/Theology project because of all the interest shown in it.  Votes count, and it's taken five years for them to get round to discussing an approach to it.  The project may be controversial (it certainly was at the start at least), but it's useful and could be increasingly so.

Andrew, thanks so much for putting this together - it's a fantastic resource. 

On opening it on my Mac, running the latest version of Excel as of November 2017, Visual Basic gives a compile error, "Can't find project or library." 

Any ideas?

Thanks for the encouragement.

It would be great if someone else was able to step in on this one.  Randy W. Sims did the work on the macros that generate the rules.  If he was able to help that would be greatly appreciated.

If no-one steps in soon, I'll try to look into it, or at least try to publish a copy without macros, which I'm assuming would work.

Also, I'll add another request that those who appreciate this project might like to consider voting for a project that builds on this one here: https://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-7/suggestions/17871697-create-a-database-of-biblical-issues-and-stances-w 

There's a longer explanation here: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/133058.aspx 

and here:  https://community.logos.com/forums/p/133058/918806.aspx#918806 

Thanks again for the encouragement.

I keep hoping VB.* will die, but every time I think it's gone... It comes back again. It's a tool of the devil. To make programmers cuss and throw stuff. How about C++, C#, Perl, or Ruby. I'd even take Python or Java over VB. Oh, well... Let's see...

Just giving a brief look, I'm guessing it's my use of the Microsoft Scripting Library (for the Dictionary/Hash) which isn't available on Mac (says Google; I don't have a Mac to test on). I'd have to find an alternative or code around it... 

Does the error prevent the spreadsheet from opening? You don't actually need to run any code to use the sheet. The code is mainly for Andrew when he updates the tables. Does the error prevent you from viewing the Workbook? Can you dismiss it and continue?

Mmm, I think OLE should probably be removed from the References too. (Alt+F11 to Code Editor, Tools => References menu)

One advantage of Python is that it is free.  I believe that it is open source while Java is 'owned'. 

The PROBLEM is that changing languages requires a total rewrite of the code. Have Fun!  [[And thanks]]

'free' and 'owned' are independent things; both are under license (nothing isn't).

Java SE is free; the advanced enterprise versions (not relevant here) are not.

The latest edition of the spreadsheet is: 1300.Denominations and Theology - 4 November 2017 (no macros).xlsx

The reference guide is still: 0763.Theology and Denomination Tag Reference - 5 April 2016.doc

The spreadsheet excludes the VBA Project code, as suggested above.  I was surprised to find that removing the code reduced it from over 13 MB to just over 2MB.  At this size, it isn't worth compressing.  I tried it and there was little gain, so I've added it as a spreadsheet, rather than a zip file.

There hasn't been too much work done on it since the last release, as I've been waiting to see what Logos produces.  There would be no point in me duplicating their work, so it's disappointing that nothing has appeared yet.

However, I have added a lot more charismatics to the list.  This is based on Craig Keener's list in "Spirit Hermeneutics: Reading Scripture in Light of Pentecost", which was released by Logos yesterday.  I've kept these charismatics coded slightly differently in the spreadsheet, in case they prove controversial, but I suspect it's a highly reliable list.

I've also updated the "Theology: Charismatics" collection at https://faithlife.com/logos-library-theology-denomination-tags/documents.

This should be useful for the 553 people who had downloaded its predecessor, out of the 1236 people who are members of this project.

Feedback appreciated as always.  Gratitude expressed in the form of votes for a project that builds on this work would be even more appreciated: https://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-7/suggestions/17871697-create-a-database-of-biblical-issues-and-stances-w 

Thanks.

Thank you Andrew for your continued efforts to keep your work up to date. I have meticulously used it to tag all of my library which increases its usefulness. Your work is appreciated.

I'm not sure why Excel does this. But you can re-import the code back in to the no-macro file, add reference back to Microsoft Scripting Runtime (the ref was removed when saved without macros), and save as a macro enabled file and the file will stay at a little over 2 MB. I have no idea why the file bloats like that.
