Hi, As my library increases so do the resources which I consider to be written by those of non-evangelical tradition. These are helpful for research and culture study, but at times I would like to ignore Non Messianic Jewish tradition and Roman Catholic tradition etc... in my search results. Does anybody have a way to do this on a large scale? Thanks!

I sounds like you may need to weed through your library and identify that which you "consider to be" evangelical, because any filtering on a large scale may conflict with your personal opinion of evangelical. With that said you can try to use community tags within the library search field (i.e. Tag:catholic) to sift out those identified by the Logos community as non-evangelical. Ultimately you will want to make a collection of the resources you have identified as evangelical so that you can use it for more narrowed searching. 

Hope that helps. I am sure others may present a different angle.

Sounds like you need to make use of Library Tagging: https://wiki.logos.com/Tagging

You may also want to investigate Collections: https://wiki.logos.com/Collections 

Both of these Wiki pages will assist you in isolating those parts of your library from others that may not fit a given criteria.  It's a bit like putting your books on different shelves.  But with both tagging and then collections you can actually have the same book of many different shelves at the same time.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.
