Every once in a while you hear someone refer to the “forbidden fruit,” and it seems like a debate often follows on whether or not the fruit was an apple…maybe a fig…
I don’t get that debate at all. There was one Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil and one Tree of Life – both of which were, of course, in the Garden of Eden. When God cast Adam and Eve out of the garden, they were denied any further access to both of those trees. We still don’t have access to either of those trees.
So whatever the forbidden fruit is, it seems logical to me that we don’t have it, have never seen it, and will not know what it even looks like until we’re walking with Him in eternity.
Am I the only one who sees this as being obvious?
It was just fruit … and it does not matter how it looked like or how it was named, it was poisonousness for the mind.
