…the “Latter-day saints” believe that god is man?

The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints’ Lexicon of doctrines cites Doctrines and Covenants as teaching that the Father in heaven is a man with a body of flesh and bones and who became God by reaching glory and perfection:

“God the Father is a glorified and perfected Man, a Persanage of flesh and bone[D. & C. 130:22], in which tangible body and eternal spirit is housed.” (Bruce R. McConkie. Mormon Doctrine. P.30)

But, this directly opposes the teaching of the Bible that the true God is not man in nature but a spirit having no flesh and bones:

“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent.” (Num. 23:19 , NKjv)

“God is Spirit.” (Jn. 4:24,lbid., emphasis ours)

“Behold My hands and my feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have.” (Lk.24:39,lbid)
