No. Does a good bullet-proof vest secure one from death? First you must actually wear the vest (correctly), and even then, you might get struck by a bus, drown or have a heart attack!

Assuming the firewall is up-to-date, correctly configured, operational & monitored it /should/ substantially reduce the /network based/ attack surface. Even so, even some of the best firewalls in the world would fail to intercept well crafted exploits (targeting human, browser, application, OS & hardware weaknesses) and besides, many security threats may originate from non-network sources.

No, Configuring the right rules in the "good firewall" depending on requirement will secure.
