#33656 Can you do Bible topic research with E-Sword

Posted by Werwer2018 on 27 May 2018 - 12:57 PM in e-Sword Questions & Answers

Hi Greg,

First, let me congratulate you on your choice of Bible (study) software. 

 

e-Sword is perhaps one of the easiest Bible programs anyone can use. Admittedly it doesn't have all the bells and whistles some other Bible programs have, but in what it can do, e-Sword punches above its waist in comparison to Bible study programs (App(lication)s).

 

That said, when it comes to e-Sword's search engines, it will do just about anything most other built-in search engines in other Bible study programs will do. Maybe not as good, but certainly will give you the best results that its been designed for. So, for example, if you want to (pick on one of your search examples) do a search on backsliding, then you would choose words, i.e., synonyms used in relation to that word in the Bible search. Moreover, you can also save that search, and also create a "topical" word list about backsliding, or any other topic you may wish to create.

 

With that said, to the extent you can use e-Sword is only limited to your imagination.. So with that, the bounds you can go with e-Sword is entirely up to you.

 

Oh yeah, I just remembered. Check also the e-Sword User Guide, and it will give you a great deal of information how you can use e-Sword's Search engine. Also in the last chapter of the User Guide, read Chapter 22: Searching e-Sword Using Regular Expressions.

 

Trust this has helped you.

 

Blessings,

Thank you very much for taking the time to respond. Your information is most helpful and will be very useful as well.

 

Greg

God Bless




#33641 Can you do Bible topic research with E-Sword

Posted by Werwer2018 on 25 May 2018 - 02:51 AM in e-Sword Questions & Answers

Well  this may be a stupid question. But I'm new to E- Sword and just downloaded it. I looked on YouTube at a couple of video's but still kind of lost about some of it. I would like to know if I can do Topical searches in E-Sword. like doing one on say , Salvation or backsliding and finding what verses or chapters are relevant to that subject. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks  Greg




#33655 Can you do Bible topic research with E-Sword

Posted by Werwer2018 on 27 May 2018 - 12:53 PM in e-Sword Questions & Answers

The topic of Salvation (Soteriology) is very controversial:
See the acronyms DAISY, ROSES and TULIP or anything between in the discussions about it.

Method 1: Look to the verses that contain those Strong numbers and use a literal translation:
For example search with the KJV+ to those Strong numbers for a list move to the verse number to see the tooltip popup.
Go to options and Scripture Tooltip select then (Active Translation) then can you see the Tooltip popup of your favorite translation that is selected in the Bible-taps.

#33316 Downloaded The Sermon Bible But can't find in E-Sword

Posted by Werwer2018 on 09 April 2018 - 01:34 PM in e-Sword Tools & Utilities

I just downloaded The Sermon Bible by William Nicoll and put it in my E-Sword file but I can't seem to figure out how to load it. I got my E-sword a couple of days ago and I think that is okay. But still trying to figure out how it works. So it could be something I'm doing or not doing. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks Greg




#33328 Downloaded The Sermon Bible But can't find in E-Sword

Well I don't know how but It actually worked. Thanks to both of you for your help.




#33320 Downloaded The Sermon Bible But can't find in E-Sword

Posted by Werwer2018 on 09 April 2018 - 06:08 PM in e-Sword Tools & Utilities

Well I tried that and it still doesn't load in e-sword. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place for it. Is it in the Library, or should be in there.

 

Thanks  Greg




#33532 Downloaded The Sermon Bible But can't find in E-Sword

Because you said "Thanks," that got you a like from me.

 

Its not very often people say "thank you," but when they do, its really appreciated. So with that, its been a real honor to help you, and thank you."

 

Blessings,

 

 

I was brought up in a Christian home and taught proper manners. Such as respecting your elders and to say please and thank you. There is much evil in this world now and I just shake my head with what I see. It is not just the young people it is also a lot of older people as well. I am sixty years old and I'm on disability and very hard for me to walk. The other day I was coming out of a store with a lady less than five feet in front of me and she looked back at me and just let the door close in front of me. I said thanks for holding the door open for me and her reply was .. Why should I. I told her it was called RESPECT and walked away.

#34097 How do I remove a module

Posted by Werwer2018 on 14 July 2018 - 03:44 PM in e-Sword Questions & Answers

Just a note on using this method of removing a resource.

 

When removing an e-Sword resource using this method, it is permanently gone. This means that the resource does not get moved to the recycle bin. So if one happens to have deleted the wrong resource, then one cannot not undelete it.

 

That said, the other option, which can be regarded as safer, is to delete the resource using Windows File Explorer. By doing it this way the file is "moved" to the recycle bin. This means if the wrong resource has been deleted, then on can restore it.

 

Another option, which can be regarded as the best and safest method,  is before deleting/removing any resource, to do a complete backup of all your resource files, including the ones you may think you no longer need, and so if one mistakenly deletes one, then it can be restored from the backed up data.

 

Trust that this will be extremely helpful

 

Blessings,

Thank you very much for the reply. I don't use the modules that I want removed so my best option is to have them removed from the computer itself. That said I already did what " silverhair " suggested. what a blessing e-sword has been for me. Especially now that I have the Facebook Christian page.

God Bless




#34107 How do I remove a module

Posted by Werwer2018 on 16 July 2018 - 05:29 AM in e-Sword Questions & Answers

Thanks for the information.




#34101 How do I remove a module

Posted by Werwer2018 on 14 July 2018 - 07:47 PM in e-Sword Questions & Answers

Thanks for your reply.

 

On many occasions I've seen/read of people who have made (bad) mistakes in where they have lost data permanently and not were able to recover it. This has happened  on numerous occasions, and tends to show me that no one is not impervious or immune to making critical errors, including deleting the "wrong" file. Numerous posts on this site bears testament of "dumb" things people have done, including yours truly. So with that, like many on this site, I've had to learn rapidly to do things the "safe" way.

 

Having said all of that, one of the most important practices I go on about, is the requirement to do regular backups. This covers all kinds of personal data/files one has on his/her computer, and not just e-Sword. And I find it amazing just how many choose to ignore this most vital practice of the safe keeping of data.

 

Therefore, my advice (and using that word is really an understatement), is to always to back up all your data, including that which one has created on e-Sword, or has downloaded an e-Sword resource, as one may make that dumb error of deleting that wrong file.

 

Hate to say this, It can even happen to you!

 

Blessings,

Well I'm in the Dumb group as I've never backed up my computer. Although I've looked into it. I always thought that it was something businesses did until my computer crashed about three months ago and now I'm trying to get all the data back. But I'm still in the dark as to how to do this and what the difference is between backing up your data and a bootable disk. So as of now I have done nothing. I know there are people out there who say how can someone be so stupid. Well it is something that know one has ever mentioned to me.

 

Thanks  Greg

God Bless

#34084 How do I remove a module

Posted by Werwer2018 on 11 July 2018 - 07:27 PM in e-Sword Questions & Answers

There are a number of e-sword modules that I don't use and I've notived that when loading my e-sword that it has slowed down considerably so I would like to uninstall them. Can someone please explain to me how I do this. Any help would be appreciated. By the way I have been using e-sword for about six months and it is Fantastic. I just started a Christian Facebook group page and it is super easy to lookup scripture now. I would recommend this to anyone. May god Bless all those involved in this site.

 

Thanks … Greg




#33492 New Christian, Do I use a concordance for verses

Posted by Werwer2018 on 24 April 2018 - 07:45 PM in e-Sword Questions & Answers

Thank you for taking the time to get back to me. I'll look into getting a Bible commentary. MY wife and I have decided that we will start going to the Salvation Army around us.

#33489 New Christian, Do I use a concordance for verses

Posted by Werwer2018 on 24 April 2018 - 04:02 PM in e-Sword Questions & Answers

I'm a new Christian and I'm having trouble understanding certain scripture verses such as Mark 16:18. Will a concordance translate this verse for me or what do I use. This verse about the serpent makes no sense to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
