Is a Wet Dream A sin?

I go all day avoiding sinful actions. Sometimes random thoughts pop into my mind but I block them out as fast as I can. However, when I sleep at night, I have no control over my dreams. And every once in a while, I will have dreams that cause, well you know. And I dislike it very much, because there is nothing I can do about it. I hate loosing testosterone. Can you sin in your dreams? And how do I stop this from happening?

Thank you for your interesting question!
No, I think that this non-stimulated,natural release of bodily tension has a purpose and is God given by His grace for your help.
By the way,are you practicing celibacy?(I notice you are a Catholic) Or,perhaps, following Christ's Commandment to flee fornication? Both reasons are very commendable. Christ must be working on your heart by the Holy Spirit. Don't give up!
And how is your personal relationship to Christ, outside of good works,sacrements,and buffeting the soul?
A helpful 100 year old article that you can "Google" up called,"Is Christ Your Lord"? by A.W.Pink, will be MOST enlightening!

Wet dreams stop when the tension is released other ways. It's not a sin, particularly because you have no control over it. Personally, I'd be more annoyed that I have to do the laundry.

No its not a sin. It is the natural way it works. Your body gets rid of the old to replace it with new. Our skin does it, our bones, hair, on and on.

Wet dream postings are common on the day that a person joins the forum.
Funny guy. I am going to call you on this posting. So what is the Acronym for HOGMAW, I give up.

Thanks for the replies! I just noticed there were a lot of threads on google similar to this one after I posted it.

I am trying to abstain from sin the best I can. It seems that the less I sin, the better my guitar playing becomes.
I will read that article you suggested. Thanks for the encouragement!

I Can't Stress This Enough...no, A Wet Dream Is Not A Sin, It's Not Bad, It's Not Dirty, Nothing Of The Sort. God Gave Us Those Feelings For A Reason. Congratulations, You've Taken A Big Step Towards Manhood.

Wet dreams are the bodies natural reactions. They're not sins and nothing to feel guilty over.

Try setting up a tape/CD of the Bible next to your bed and let it play on a low volume while you sleep. It might help, or it might not. If it doesn't help after a couple of weeks stop doing it.

Blessings,

Alan

Here's four verses which appear to fit well - Two from The Old & two from The New:

If there be among you any man, that is not clean by reason of uncleanness that chances him by night, then shall he go abroad out of the camp, he shall not come within the camp:
But it shall be, when evening comes on, he shall wash himself with water: and when the sun is down, he shall come into the camp again.
<-----> Deuteronomy 23:10+11

If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwells in me.
<-----> Romans 7:16+17
