 Which verses are you referring to that indicate a flat earth?
MBR
Gen 1 6-8, Exod 20 .4 Isaiah 40, 22.

A flat earth is inevitable from the cosmology of the day.

As for stars falling to earth, I have always taken those verses to be
figurative, much like Revelation 12:1 describes a woman clothed with the sun
and a crown of stars upon her head. I don't believe such verses were
intended to be taken literally.

MBR try Matt 24, 29 Mark 13 25.
Also in 30 AD astronomers thought the stars were small
