I would try first running the Apple Hardware Test (AHT) on your MacBook to see if it comes up with anything.
You can find information on that here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1509

If that doesn't detect any issues, I would try starting up your Mac in SafeMode and see if you still have the same problem. http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1564

You may need to reinstall your operating system if you don't find any issues in AHT, and honestly an operating system reinstall would be favorable over failing hardware, at least it would be in my opinion.

Best of luck!

Looks like you might be having a kernel panic; which usually is some software issue, although I don't know that it can't also be caused by hardware. Not sure if it's significant, but the reference to the firewall may be telling. If it's on, try turning it off temporarily especially if you're at home and behind a router of some kind. If you go on a public wireless, turn it back on.  See if that makes a difference.
