Are lucid dreams a sin?

Last updated on October 8, 2020


I have a question. I read that lucid dreaming is a sin. If so, how do I stop it? Normally once I know I’m in a dream, I can do just about anything. I haven’t seen many sites about this, but I’m curious. Is lucid dreaming a sin?


Sin is when you break a law of God. “Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness” (I John 3:4). Dreaming is not a sin, no matter how vivid it is. Generally, you can’t control the content of your dreams, so you should not worry about them. If you can modify a dream, you should keep your thought on pure things.
