There are such people.
But, first, in order to understand exactly what this person can not love, you need to trace his life over a fairly long period of time. So, for example, if we are talking about a person of 20-30 years old, then who knows, perhaps it's just that his time has not yet come.
Secondly, the peculiarity of people who cannot love precisely because of any deviations is that they do not strain much on this topic. They understand that they can't do something, but they can't assess the scale of the situation. But if a person starts to worry about this topic, most likely, everything is fine with his ability to love, but it has not yet been “unpacked”.
So they live with it. Either they live and don't worry, or they live and wait.
Good day, Evgeny. Of course, this happens. There are various human mental pathologies and spiritual illnesses, from the influence of which a person can absolutely not love anyone, and even himself. At the expense of correction, it all depends on whether the person himself wants to voluntarily correct or not, whether he is able to do something that will heal him or not. If he is ready to learn to love, then living in the Christian faith according to the commandments of God will gradually correct him. God is an All-powerful Physician and has the power to correct any person, to heal any diseases (I mean here diseases of a spiritual and mental nature). Here are lines from the Gospel that show that the pinnacle of Christian virtues is love and it is also the foundation of the law of God:
And Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind:
this is the first and greatest commandment;
and the second is like unto it: thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself;
on these two commandments the whole law and the prophets are established. Chapter 22. The Gospel of Matthew.
God is love, he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in Him. – from the first epistle of the apostle John. I strongly advise you to read this message. It especially talks about love.
If I speak with the tongues of men and angels, but have no love, I am a clanging brass or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries, and have all knowledge and all faith, so that I can move mountains, but do not have love, then I am nothing.
And if I give away all that I have, and give my body to be burned, and have no love, it profiteth me nothing.
Love is long-suffering, merciful, love does not envy, love does not exalt itself, is not proud,
he does not act out, does not seek his own, does not get annoyed, does not think evil,
he does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
covers everything, believes everything, hopes everything, endures everything.
Love never ceases, though prophecies will cease, and tongues will be silenced, and knowledge will cease. – 1 Corinthians. Chapter 13.
That's my answer. If you have any related questions or questions about the text, ask them. I will be happy to answer. Here I did not stop to describe what you need to do to get closer to God in Christianity. This is a separate and deep topic. In addition, I partly wrote this in other letters.
Peace be with you.
Perhaps you need to separate the types of love.
Mental – emotions, feelings, sympathy, affection, love, sexuality. As a result of some psychological trauma or psychiatric illnesses, a person may have difficulties with one of the manifestations of spiritual love. Here you need to contact the appropriate specialist. Basically, probably, anyone is able to express their feelings normally.
Spiritual. No one is perfect in it, “for this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments “(1 John 5: 3). But no one fully observes them, so no one is capable of true, all-encompassing divine love. But in principle, everyone can expand their heart and become more and more involved in divine love.
In addition, spiritual love is a person's free choice: to follow the commandments of love or not, to be faithful or not, to give one's life for another or not. And everyone can make a choice.
Character, temperament, psyche, upbringing, etc. can only help or hinder love. But, probably, nothing can so distort the nature of a person that he completely becomes incapable of love.
Quite. Or there may be another option, when a person can love, but expresses this feeling in a perverted way. From the series: beats-means loves. Let such things go by themselves is not worth it, it is better to visit a psychiatrist. It is very difficult to get to the bottom of the truth yourself, and even more so you will not understand how to work with your psychoses yourself
