Alma the Younger and Laman are two of the worst young men in the scriptures.

They were both absolutely rotten even though they had good parents who taught them and prayed for them.

They also both saw an angel. And while both of them changed after that, for Laman it was temporary while Alma’s change was permanent.

What made the difference?
