Welcome aboard BibleStudent1
You have recieved excellent advice thus far.
Jesus warned us to beware of false teachers. Beware involves examination and research before being influenced by.
Please do tell your Bible Study leaders that you are going to take a month or two off to do some independent research on Jehovah's Witnesses before you take up studies with them again. They won't like this and discourage you from learning anything apart from their organization and literature. Tell them you are determined to do this research and that settles it. Don't submit to their pressure tactics including warnings in their attempt to dissuade you.
Before you buy a major appliance or a new car, you don't just trust the manufacturer. You get facts from consumer reports and reviews.
I believe the Lord led you to this site so you could be warned of the dangers involved with associating with this high control religion.
Take care my friend.
