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?

The Cannon and More Books

Brother Erick ,

I was referring to Early Church Fathers who removed some of The Books that we do not use today like The Didache and replacing it with The Catechism of The Church. The Didache is very Jewish and points out a Jewish Understanding that is missing from our Greek Theology that we use today.

Also The Books of The Asian Church especially from Syria and India was considered of a lesser importance to The Greek and Roman Church. Also The Coptic Churct Writings were held in lesser regards as well.
