The apple if you have read the bible the apple is called the forbidden fruit. It is both the fruit of sin and the fruit of knowledge. It is state in the book of Genesis chapter 3 verses 1 to 13 that Adam and Eve were lured by the evil snake to eat the apple which is forbidden by God to be eaten. But still they were deceived to eat it. And as a result they were exiled from the Garden of Eden.

At present an apple is a fruit that many like to eat. As the saying goes “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away.” Because there are a lot of benefits eating this fruit, according to the benefits of apples are as follows:

1. Reduce blood cholesterol

2. Improve bowel function

3. Reduce risk of stroke

4. Prostate cancer

5. Type II diabetes

6. Asthma

7. Improve lung function and reduce the risk of respiratory diseases

8. Play a role in inhibiting ageing-related problems, preventing wrinkles and promoting hair growth

9. And a good source of lots of vitamins such as potassium

So why is apple a forbidden fruit? Is it still a sin every time we eat this fruit? With lots of benefits from this I think God would reconsider.

The bible should come with a health warning - trying to take it literally "can seriously harm you and others around you."

Apples, on the other hand, are great and are now in season in the UK - hooray!

Perhaps the benefits of apples are an example of temptation, though I have never taken the bible too literally. Thanks for the nice comments you left on my site.
