    knifed and marked for life

    A South London gang vowed that if any of their members became Christians they would be knifed and marked for life. (Brian Mills, Three Times Three Equals Twelve)

    What does knifed and marked for life mean?
    I need native speakers' help.

    A knife would leave a scar, wouldn't it?
