What was the forbidden fruit of Adam and Eve?
The Bible calls it the fruit of "the tree that gives knowledge of what is good and what is bad" (Gen. 2:16-17). This was a very special tree, planted in the middle of the garden (Gen. 3:3). It was not an apple, or a fig or any other kind of fruit known to us today.
Some people think that the "forbidden fruit" was the sex act. This is not true, because God commanded Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply before they became disobedient (Gen. 1:28). Sex is therefore a gift of God to a married couple. It only becomes sin if you have sex with someone to whom you are not married (1 Cor. 6:9-10).
Today we live with the terrible fruit of that first deed of disobedience. But we can also enjoy the fruit of Christ's deed of obedience, when He was willing to suffer for your sake on the cross of Calvary. He took all your sins upon Him (Romans 5:6-8). Now you can be forgiven totally, and become a child of God by receiving Christ as your Saviour (John 1:12). Please do not not
allow this opportunity for a new life pass you by!
