I'm not asking that to be flippant or silly. And I don't want to hijack saturneptune's thread on the 24-hour sinless life. But two people made a comment that caused me to ponder. I don't dream very often. One of two things usually happen to me. I drop off straight to sleep like the Rock of Gibraltar and never dream or wake until morning or I have insomnia and therefore don't dream. But, when I do occasionally dream, I dream TERRIBLE things. Not too long ago, I dreamed that I killed someone in my family. It took me several hours after waking up to shake that horrible feeling. I have dreamed about things inappropriate to talk about here and very frightening things that were always my fault. I don't believe that I am sinning in merely dreaming these things, but thinking about them during the day and recalling those images over and over for several hours that you are trying NOT to think about is sinful.....in my opinion. I have never experienced a pleasant dream that I can recall. I'm just GLAD that I don't dream very often. What do you think about uncontrollable dreaming of bad things? Is the dream itself the sin or is the fretting over it the sin?
