The knowledge itself was not the sin, eating the
forbidden fruit to gain the knowledge was the sin. So
we are forgiven for eating the fruit and the knowledge
is now ours to do with as we please. So I guess using
your robber example, we got pardoned THUS we get to
keep the goods we stole. That is my interpretation.
