I think the Palamite definition of uncreated energies was used to uphold Orthodox doctrine against non Orthodox redefinition.
Precisely. Given the current events in the Coptic Orthodox Church, who knows what will happen in the next century. A new Palamas might arise among us to fight against the Metropolitan who seems to spew Barlaamite teachings.
But for now, given my reading and research, the real distinction OOs hold is not essence/energy, but is/partake.
