Does anyone or anyone you know get urges to self-mulitate?

Jesus gave some strict commands to cut our hands off rather than sin. After reading those I got urges to actually cut off my hands and cut my tongue out, as we can sin by what we say.

I then realised that I got the urge to cut my tongue out 24 hours before I did say something blasphemous. Also, I get the urge to castrate myself 24 hours before I have an opportunity to have sex outside of marriage.

I thought this was God urging me to hurt myself as it predicted the future but now I realise it's sarcastic. It's basically saying OK if you think blaspheming is going to displease God and send you to hell cut your tongue out! (or trust in jesus sacrifice as the alternative option)

Just in case anyone didnt understand:- I dont think anyone should hurt themselves.

I think you should simply divert your attention to the more loving and forgiving nature of Christ.

Yea this is the conclusion I came to. Those verses do trouble some people who don't realise they are not literal
