Is the Apocrypha inspired revelation?

According to the first completed Canon of Scripture at the Council of Carthage in AD 419, the apocryphal books were adopted as biblical. http://www.ccel.org/ccel/schaff/npnf214.xv.iv.iv.xxv.html Why do not the protestant Churches consider them scriptural? Most contemporary Bibles exclude the apocryphal books but even the original King James Version included them. Are they any less inspired than the other books of the Bible?

Apocrypha

I personally don't believe they are inspired. I agree with John Barnett's explanation here: http://www.jesus.org/birth-of-jesus/genealogy-and-jewish-heritage/is-the-apocrypha-scripture.html

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast
