Question

Good morning.

I am 23 years old. I was addicted to porn and masturbation until two months ago. I found out about a Christian website where it talked about incubus and succubus and other sex demons. I used their self deliverance short prayers more often.  For some time I did not have wet dreams, but now I have them at least once or twice week. Now long ago, I watched porn and masturbated by mistake. Yesterday I did not pray and I had wet dreams. This morning I prayed before going to sleep and I had dreams. My question is why do I still get wet dreams even after intense prayers?


Answer

"These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh" (Colossians 2:23).

Just because someone claims to be a Christian, it doesn't mean they are teaching Christ's doctrine. "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world" (I John 4:1). See: Are incubus and succubus real?

Pornography is wrong because it is lusting after sex with people to whom you are not married. "For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God" (I Thessalonians 4:3-5). See: Lies Pornography Tells Men. Blaming your pornography viewing on demons does nothing to solve the problem, it is merely a way to avoid taking responsibility for your bad choices.

Wet dreams are a normal occurrence for males. See: How nocturnal emissions happen. When your seminal vesicles are full, all the prayers in the world are not going to make them less full. You have to ejaculate to relieve yourself of the excess semen. It is just a fact of life for men. Wet dreams are not caused by demons.
