ERADICATION

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy tells us (p. 400), "Eradicate the image of disease from the perturbed thought before it has taken tangible shape in conscious thought, alias the body, and you prevent the development of disease." It is doubtful if any word in the English language expresses so clearly and completely the required action as the word "eradicate." A dictionary defines the word thus: "To pull up by the roots; root out; hence, to destroy thoroughly; extirpate."

At first sight one may wonder why such an emphatic, far-reaching term is necessary for the removal of a mere thought or imagination. Surely, if one has entertained a thought or imagined something, this is entirely disposed of when discarded and replaced by another thought or image.
