Aggressors

"Fight in the way of God with those who fight with you, but do not aggress, for God does not love aggressors."-The Quran

 I believe that God still loves aggressors, even when we struggle. The aggressor may struggle to feel Gods love. I still believe it is there. Although, these are still wise words to live by. There are many consequences to aggression. All of these consequences could easily be read as God's disapproval.

I recently looked at another translation where the quote replaces aggressors with transgressors. Each individual would have their own personal moral code. They would have their own understanding of what is a transgressor. In many ways we would also have our own definition of what is aggression.
