I guess if you have a lucid dream, then it's technically possible.

Usually you don't really have a choice about what you do in your dreams, so it can't be sin.

Isn't that like my child drinking two big glasses of milk right before bed. Then telling me it was not his fault he wet the bed. He was a sleep.

I mean, there could be a lot of reasons why you have a "sinful" dream though. Trying to make yourself live up to your standards is a good thing, even if you have some repressed fantasies that end up coming out in your dreams.

What would the milk-drinking represent, though? Yes, dreams often reflect what we were doing and thinking when awake but then it's those conscious activities that can be sinful - the dreams are just a consequence.

Not really on-topic, but I have this recurring dream theme of public toilets (or toilets in a building like a hospital) that are a bit too public - no doors, or no walls... it never seems as bad in the dream as it would in reality though. :oops: :)

I can't see how it's possible to sin in our dreams. We don't consciously dream.

The milk is representative of willful choice. The child knew exactly what they were doing and possibily.the concequences. Technically the child is right that they were asleep but that does not takeaway their involvement in the bed wetting occuring.

I think the child just thought milk. Bed wetting is due to lots of reasons, not just a full bladder. I would never, ever think a child responsible for accidents.

In my supposed senario, its a child old enough to know not to drink too much before bed or they will.wet through. My.six year old knows this very well. And you are right, there can be other reasons but wirh my kids, unless they are sick, its cos they drunk too much before bed

Im not using the example of a kid with abnormal problems of bed wetting in my senario.

BUT even on the occassion that its e.g sickness, I also dont believe we have involvement with all our sinful.dreams either at certain times.

Im not talking about a child taking blame, but accepting their involvement e.g my 6 year would understand 2 full big glasses of milk at bedtime would probably end with a wet bed.

Our thoughts, words, and actions during the waking hours can very much affect our dreams.
If we have a sinful dream we can quite possibly have some involvement with it occuring.

My senario wasnt perfect by any means but it does show how our actions during the waking hours can impact what happens during sleep. And at times we do have involvement with what happens during sleep because of those actions/thoughts.
