Dream Sin

First, if you haven’t left a comment here yet, please do so, then come back!

I had a dream.  No, not a dream that all men are created equal.  Nothing like that at all.  I had a dream that I was looking at porn.  As I sit here, I wonder… is it possible to sin while asleep?  Is it possible to sin in a dream?  I know you can’t really control much about what you do in your dreams, but you can make decisions.  I remember that, in my dream, I was looking at porn.  After a while of watching it, I remembered my vow to give it up, and I immediately stopped looking and thought “what have I done?”.

…but, it was just a dream.  Along with what I mentioned about not having much control over our dreams, one of the things about dreams is that sometimes you just end up in the middle of situations.  I don’t remember dreaming about ‘beginning’ to look at the porn.  I was just suddenly doing it.  In real life, I’m generally tempted to do something I’m not already doing.  It is at that point that I pray and decline the temptation.  It is that point that I make the conscious decision to do the right thing.  In the dream, that point never occurred.  I was already in the act of the sin, so I never really go that opportunity to say “no, i won’t do it”.  So, I was just looking at it like “la dee da” but then after what I would imagine would be equal to several minutes, I realized what was happening.

Very odd, this theory.  It’s a very interesting question… Can we sin in our dreams?  If we can make conscious decisions in our subconscious minds, wouldn’t the answer be “yes”?

What do you think?

    I think that is a great question. I have no idea though, as i do not dream. I am lucky if i get 1 dream a year, and when i do they are very vague.
