The word limbo comes from the Latin word
means a border, a hem, or fringe around the edge of a garment.
The term is associated in common parlance to mean some
in-between state of being.
It is often associated, in a religious context, with
of being in neither heaven nor hell
, therefore on the fringe
of either. It has been used to refer to
the abode for the dead
who were neither capable of committing deadly sin
(1 John 5:16) which excluded the soul from hell nor were
baptized in water and the Holy Spirit (John 3:5) which
excluded the soul from heaven.
