The bible speaks of "a lake of fire" and back then the earth was believed to be flat.It also speaks of being thrown in the "lake of fire" for sins committed.
Here is the tricky part.I do not think it is symbolic at all but rather their interpretation of the sun setting in the evening and appearing to be..........tada A LAKE OF FIRE.
With some research I found that some people thought that if people disappeared for whatever reason,they had fallen into the lake of fire(off the edge of the earth).I also found that"sinners"were killed in the evening as the sun was setting.
My question is,could this simply have been an overall punishment and not really a "bible" thing?

That is entirely possible! I always imagined that someone was freaked out by a lava flow.
