Biblespeak is a euphemism for a kind of discourse which frames concepts and language in highly Biblical or otherwise religious terms. As a language like English, may be a vehicle for biblespeak, the use of religious metaphor carries an implied stipulation to biblical concepts, thus tolerating little inclusion for outside terms, such as those used in psychology for example.

In a sense, biblespeak is a metaphorical language in its own right, because it's heavily dependent on a source, such as the Bible as a common reference for concepts; often these concepts are metaphysical (spiritual) in nature, and find little meaning if translated to secular otherwise common terms.
