Do they officially give marking talks without telling the one marked?

    Thank you all very much. I can't believe I thought they told the marked one. oh wait. I remember as a kid a friend telling me that they are about to mark her Mom. That was quite a while ago, and I'm sure WT changed for legal slimy reasons. So. Now I know I was definitely marked a while back. I could not convince my PIMI hubby because I DID ask an elder about it and he lied, lied, lied. I WAS quite bold! ;) I even believed him a little at the time, even though I was PIMO for a few months by then. The next Sat my hubby and I went out in service and I told him most everyone, including ALL the elders, were very cold. Hubby is clueless this way, very math like mind if that makes sense. Anyway, now I totally believe my PIMI friend and will give her as much support as possible. I really wish I could give more details, it is just SO unique!!! I have never read about the situation surrounding the marking here or anywhere else.

    Thanks JP and others for the inside info!

    Done, too funny.

    Thank you all so much.

    It depends on what you mean. The congregation must first attempt to counsel the person.

    You commit a sin. Confess to elders. Repent. Receive private reproof. Next meeting they have a marking talk for you.

    If you're repentant and privately reproved a marking talk doesn't seem to fit the pattern of loving shepherding.

    Marking is for "disorderly ones" that haven't actually committed sins of a df degree.
