Bottom edge has: "This statement appeared originally in the New York Times and other newspapers on Good Friday, April 16, 1954".

Top edge of poster has the text: "No Man Can Serve Two Masters". Below is a drawing of a stylized nuclear mushroom cloud with a Christian cross. Below the drawing is the text: "Today the cross of Christ stands in the shadow of the cross / of hydrogen, calling us back to the meaning of Calvary. / Two crosses: one standing for redemptive love and forgive- / ness, for the acceptance of suffering, for hope, for life; the other / for fear, for death. One proclaims that evil is overcome with / good; the other that evil can only be met with evil. / Man cannot serve both Christ and the bomb. He must / choose which is to be his master. Let us choose the cross of / Christ. Let us cease deluding ourselves: peace cannot be built / from fear. Men do not gather grapes from thorns. Let us be / done with these fearful weapons, regardless of what others do. / Whether the bomb is a tool to deter or destroy, it is not the / sign by which men conquer. / 'Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord' / American Friends Service Committee Brethren Service Commission / Mennonite Central Committee".
